Hello, I am using BIMserver to create admin so that I could import IFC files from sketch up make 2017 to Open studio version 2.3.0. As stated in the instructions on [] ,I downloaded Java JDk 1.7 but the JDK 1.7 is not available on Oracle anymore. Hence, I downloaded JDK 1.7 on other web.

After downloaded all softwares needed for this BIMserver and I run the program, It stated server successfully started. Download the latest OSMSerializer and copy the OSMSerializer.jar file into the plugins subfolder under the bimserver-[version] folder as said in the instructions as well.

So I proceed to click on start again and it also shows 'Server started successfully'. But when I launch the browser and click on to go to admin page, it stated browser is not connected or 404-page error. Is there someone out there that can solve this problem? Thank you!

I am able to solve the problem already! Make sure the STOP button is NOT clicked before launching the web browser.

As shown below, the Server is 'Shut Down' which means that I had stopped the server before I launch the server. Hence, I could not connect to the web browser.
