          oh, this sounds like RHQ 4.5. I assumed you were grabbing the latest code and distro (which is RHQ 4.6 and its build and installation is *very* different  than RHQ 4.5).


          The docs for RHQ 4.5 are here in the confluence RHQ45 space: https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/RHQ45


          That message just means you have previously installed an RHQ on that database. You can tell the installer to overwrite the database - you'd lose all previous data and it just starts with a fresh, clean DB.


          As for your other questions regarding building - you should indicate which version you are using. Because, as mentioned, RHQ 4.5 and 4.6 are very different (4.5 has JBossAS 4.2.3 under the covers and has a web installer; 4.6 has JBossAS 7.1.1.Final under the covers and has no web installer, just a command line installation script). All of this is documented on the wiki.


          4.6 docs: https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/RHQ

          4.5 docs: https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/RHQ45


          There are wiki pages on how to run the installer, how to install the server and agent, how to build, etc, etc.
