Forum OpenACS Q&A: Aolserver issue?
After migrate from dotlrn 2.4 to 2.5, the service was working fine; but yesterday something really weird started to happend.
Network conections are fine, aolserver is alive, but the services just stop and we can't access the website.
There is no changes on aolserver configuration file, or dotlrn config file... and there is no failure logs. ("pings" to both IP's are answering,too)
Today, the services don't want to take the 80 port and this is a critical services for the university, we realice that after made a change un acs-subsite (changes like delete white spaces which always be there) the system at least try to be up.
Can anyone help me? or refers me to someone who had a problem like this?
When you try to connect to port 80, does it connect and wait for input (expected) or do you get "connection refused"?
1. are you starting the server as root, either by using sudo or by starting as root user? Only root can use ports numbered under 1024 .
2. are you sure that all pieces of the old AOLserver are completely dead? Under Linux, run "ps auwx | grep nsd" and be sure that the old nsd has actually exited. You may need to use "kill -9 PID" where PID is the process ID of the old nsd , to be sure it is dead and gone.
