Hi Tikendra,

Thanks for posting the query. Please follow the installation guide (

On analyzing the attached log, the below message was found in the error stack trace.

Caused by: Connection reset
The connection was closed when Java tried to read from it. This can be caused by:

The PostgreSQL server being restarted
The PostgreSQL backend you were connected to being terminated
The PostgreSQL backend you were connected to crashing
Dodgy network connection
Badly behaved stateful firewalls
