Hello Tactic-friends,
I am trying to install latest TACTIC-4.4.0.v02 enterprise on a debian-system with Postgresql 9.4
I got till running the installscript:, but now I'm stuck with the following error:

I installed all the dependancies, postgreql& apache seem to work, but now I'm stuck woth this error...
Does anyone know how to solve this?

Hi kaspar128,
there is a bug in the setup script for 4.4.0.v02 a patch is already committed for the next version.
For now you can get the patched install script from github:

Thanx Diego! That solved my issue!
Had to fix a few other issues due to installing on debian, but now it is working.
If I have time to spare, i'll try to post a how-to install for debian.
