I am trying to install Landscape Dedicated Server for personal use on a clean Ubuntu 14.04 server from scratch. After adding the ppa-repository and updating apt, I install the thing with apt install landscape-server-quickstart. It all goes well for a while, until:

 * Stopping Landscape standalone appserver 1                             [ OK ]

I tried it several times, but it never worked. Does anybody have a workaround?


The QuickStart is presumably tested against the latest point release. Try fully updating your clean LTS install first, that will get you from 14.04.0 to 14.04.3.

When I ran the Landscape Server for Personal Use (the Landscape Dedicated Server), I had quite some difficulty getting the QuickStart to work.

I had much more luck with the Manual Installation than I did quick-start. I think that the Manual Installation gets everything working the way it should, while QuickStart isn't a guarantee to make it 100% work.

The instructions change from version to version, slightly, so copying the key instructions into here would be useless - please refer to the link for Manual Installation.
