Introduction:
I have the following error in the ActiveMQ installation for PIM 14:

# ./install_ActiveMQ.bin -i console
...

Please define the port, administrator username, and password for the ActiveMQ
Web Console.

Invalid Password

The password must be at least 6 characters long


I tried to introduce different passwords with numbers, alphanumeric characters, capital letters... but we always received the same message "The password must be at least 6 characters long"

Environment:
ActiveMQ for PIM 14.
Answer:
A likely cause for this problem to occur is having the /tmp folder attributes with non execution permission (rw-).
If this is the case, the solution would be setting the proper permissions (rwx) to the /tmp folder.
