I've been following this guide to install Shibboleth Identity Provider 3.3.2 on Jetty 9.3.22 (Ubuntu Server 16.04 with Oracle JDK 8u151).

At https://my.server.ip/idp I get a 503 error (Service Unavailable).

  • Jetty Home: /opt/jetty/jetty-distribution (symlinked to jetty-distribution-9.3.22.v20171030 in the same directory)
  • Jetty Base: /opt/jetty/jetty-base
  • Shibboleth Installation: /opt/shibboleth-idp

I've created a jetty user and I'm using setuid to bind to ports 80 and 443. jetty:jetty owns everything under /opt/jetty/ and /opt/shibboleth-idp

Logs and configs below, though the configs are mostly a copy/paste from the instructions. I've also configured logback per the instructions, but that seems to be working, so I won't include the config unless necessary.

I should also note that I have not begun configuring Shibboleth. As I understand, I should still at least be able to run this command and get some results:

root@shib:/opt/shibboleth-idp/bin# ./status.sh 
(http://localhost/idp/status) Server returned HTTP response code: 503 for URL: http://localhost/idp/status

Before even navigating to any URL, I get this in /opt/jetty/jetty-base/log/jetty.log upon starting the jetty service:

I managed to solve the problem today. After some more research, this Jetty bug seemed related to my issue. The patch didn't make the Jetty 9.3.22 release, so I built the latest 9.3.x branch from source and I'm using that now.

So, that is:

git clone https://github.com/eclipse/jetty.project.git
cd jetty.project
git checkout --track origin/jetty-9.3.x
mvn clean install

After building, copy and extract ./jetty-distribution/target/jetty-distribution-9.3.23-SNAPSHOT.tar.gz to your desired location.
