Nevertheless, I've gone over what I've done in my head a thousand
times, and I can't figure out what I've done. So, here's the lowdown.
I had AOLserver serving static files. No problem. I was using
AOLserver 3.0. I just downloaded the latest version last week, to get
all the fixes from their upgrades. To serve static files, I just
modified the default nsd.tcl a little. I had AOLserver installed in
/home/nsadmin. I can't remember why I put it there, but it worked.
I got PostgreSQL 6.5.3 running without any trouble. I can do all the
work I need as postgres, as well as nsadmin (my AOLserver
I compiled the PostgreSQL driver for AOLserver without any errors.
I loaded the latest ACS/pg (3. something beta--I just got it tonight,
so I know it's the latest).
I unzipped ACS/pg without any trouble, but I kept things in /tmp.
Up to this point, I could still get the web server to serve static
I was playing with the driver, trying to use it in my nsd.tcl. I had
a few problems, read the docs, read these discussion forums, found
some answers. I can't remember what all happened there. I've had a
tough day, and my head is swimming.
I moved ACS/pg from /tmp to /web/rbs (my virtual server).
Somewhere in the last two steps, I lost the ability to serve static
pages. I haven't even tried to serve anything from the ACS yet. I
went back and commented out all the Postgres driver related code out
of my nsd.tcl file. I moved the contents of /web/rbs/parameter to
somewhere else (I know that there was something pointing to these
files from nsd.tcl, and I didn't have any additional parameters
I also checked my server.log, and there are no errors. It says
"Notice: waiting for connections" as the last line in server.log. I
know that this line was written from the most recent time I ran the
The command I ran was:
/home/nsadmin/bin/nsd8x -u nsadmin -t /home/nsadmin/nsd1.tcl &
I ran the command as root. When I hit return after this, the terminal
says the process is done, although it leaves running threads.
The bottom line is I can't serve static files, and I can't figure out
what I broke.
Can anyone help me please?
