Reinstalling the Java Client for FC Server

MattG's picture

Here's how to reliably reinstall the Java Client on a Mac.

  1. Delete the Java Applet, usually found on the Desktop. (Sometimes an end-user has placed this in their Applications folder.)
  2. Delete the following folders (directories):



    ~/Library/Caches/Java/

    ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.finalcutserver/
  3. Delete the following file:



    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finalcutserver.plist



    (Note: ~ means the user's home folder, ie. /Users/<username>)
  4. Now, go back to the URL of your Final Cut Server box:



    http://<ip or domain here>/finalcutserver

...and the reinstall should go well.
