Hi shuren,

Did you get a response to your portal problem? I know this is an old issue but we are facing the same error, any pointers will be helpful.

Thanks,
Radhika

Radhika,

You need to install database correctly for the protal before you start it.

Also, you can try portal version 7.0.

Regards,

Shuren
