Hello,

I try to run:

  1. wget https://download2.rstudio.org/rstudio-server-rhel-0.99.893-x86_64.rpm
  2. sudo yum install --nogpgcheck rstudio-server-rhel-0.99.893-x86_64.rpm
  3. sudo rstudio-server verify-installation
  4. sudo rstudio-server stop
  5. sudo rstudio-server start

However, with (2), I get this error:

Running Transaction Installing : rstudio-server-0.99.893-1.x86_64 1/1 groupadd: group 'rstudio-server' already exists rsession: no process killed initctl: Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused initctl: Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused Verifying : rstudio-server-0.99.893-1.x86_64 1/1

Installed: rstudio-server.x86_64 0:0.99.893-1

Complete!

Then when I try (3), I get this error: [root@sandbox ~]# sudo rstudio-server verify-installation Unable to find an installation of R on the system (which R didn't return valid output); Unable to locate R binary by scanning standard locations initctl: Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused [root@sandbox ~]#

Looking forward to your suggestions.

Thanks,

Marcia

@Marcy I'm glad you were able to resolve the problem, please use the comments section for non-solution specific dialog and only use "answer" section for solutions and anything that does not fit in comments, usually that's 600 characters or more. It is hard to follow steps to resolution if you add too many answers.
