When trying to start the Appian search server using start.sh/bat, users may see the following error in the command line:
Unable to run Appian search server.
No search server process is started.
The start.sh script attempts to create a file called ss.pid containing the pid of the search server process validates that the search server has been correctly started. If the file cannot be created, the search server does not start. Issues with creating the ss.pid file can be caused by running the script as an invalid user or restrictive permissions on the <APPIAN_HOME>/search-server/bin folder.
This article applies to all versions of Appian.
