Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Openacs DB connection issue

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Anytime you restart your RDBMS, you must then restart AOLserver once your RDBMS is back up and working.

In principle it would probably be feasible to enhance the AOLserver database handling code to recover from a restarted RDBMS, but in practice the need for that is rare, and simply restarting AOLserver is an easy and fairly non-intrusive way to handle it.

Rocael is right, if you are frequently encountering problems that force you to restart your RDBMS, something is very wrong; you need to figure out what and fix it.
