Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Overview

When you start Web Help Desk and click FAQs in the toolbar, the FAQ module fails and generates an error. 

Environment

  • WHD 12.4.0

Cause 

The Web Help Desk installer fails to remove outdated Apache® Tomcat libraries during the Web Help Desk 12.4.0 upgrade. This problem occurs when you upgrade to version 12.4.0 from a release prior to version 12.0.0. 

Resolution

Perform the following steps on your Web Help Desk system:

  3. Navigate to your Web Help Desk directory.
    - Apple® OS X®: /Library/WebHelpDesk    
    - Microsoft® Windows®:  \Program Files\WebHelpDesk    
    - Linux: /usr/local/webhelpdesk
  4. Ensure that the ecj-4.4.2.jar file is in the directory.

  5. Remove the following files from the \lib directory (if available):
    • ecj-3.7.2.jar
    • ecj-4.2.1.jar
    • ecj-4.4.jar
  6. Start Web Help Desk.
  7. In the toolbar, click FAQs.

  8. Ensure that your FAQs appear on your screen with no error messages. 

    The resolution is completed.
