Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: error while installing developer support service
Is there any other way to do this?
1. Download the APM file (which is just a tgz) from http://openacs.org/repository/5-3/acs-developer-support-5.2.0d1.apm
2. Extract the content (tar -xvzf acs-developer-support-5.2.0d1.apm). Copy or move this folder into your-instance-root-folder/packages
3. Now you can go to http://yourinstance/acs-admin/apm and install the package.
I downloaded and extracted the file to the packages directory, then went into install software, install from local, and selected acs-developer-support. It installed very quickly(less than one second). I clicked to restart the server but it will not come back up. Any idea what I should do? I have shell access to the box but do not know what commands will restart the service.
To start the service, you can do this:
/usr/lib/aolserver4/bin/nsd -u www-data -g www-data -t /var/www/openacs/etc/config.tcl
Change it to match your AOLserver bin path, user, group and OpenACS root path.
If you want to check the daemon details, you can find the explanation at http://openacs.org/doc/current/install-openacs-keepalive.html
/var/lib/aolserver/dodss-cleat/bin/nsd -u smith -g web -t /var/lib/aolserver/dodss-cleat/etc/config.tcl
-bash: /var/lib/aolserver/dodss-cleat/bin/nsd: No such file or directory
There are multiple instances of open acs on the server, would that make a difference?
If there are other instances running, you can do a "ps aufx" to see how they were started.
Where else should I look?
Sorry for all the questions, I'm just not familiar with the directory structure...
/usr/local/aolserver4/bin/nsd -u smith -g web -t /var/lib/aolserver/dodss-cleat/etc/config.tcl
Which gave me:
