Forum OpenACS Q&A: Notification installed but unable to mount
When I try to "mount" notifications, it's not on the list of things to be mounted -- it's not on the already mounted list either -- hmmmmm -- it's not on that page at all.
At the site map, I create a new subfolder and then click on "new application" -- I would expect notification to appear on the pulldown, however, it's not there. So I select "install new package" and it's not in the list to be installed. In fact, it says it is already installed, to wit:
Package "Note" (notes) version 0.11d or higher is already installed.
Package "Notifications" (notifications) version 0.3d or higher is already installed.
Still, no notification link is appearing on Lars-blogger or elsewhere.
Notificatoins should be automatically mounted at /notifications.
Although that shouldn't prevent you from mounting it again.
Did you restart your server after installation?
How recent is your oacs-4-6 checkout and server install?
Any errors in the error log during installation?
I'm sorry to tell you that I have had the same problem. I am working with 4.6/linux Suse 8.0/PostgreSQL.
I have to do it several time in the "site map" in order to get it to work. I have had to re-start the server every time it happens (which is pretty much every time I mount a new package). I don't mind doing it since I'm working locally and my server is not even on-line; but if this was a production server, I could not afford to be doing that every time. There must be a bug some where.
When I got to either /notifications/ or /notifications/admin/ I get:
The requested URL was not found on this server.
I did a complete reboot, which should have restarted the server...however, I'm wondering about some service that I have in /var/services/
What's making me wonder, and this may be related or entirely a different issue -- when a user goes to /pvt/home.adp there is this text:
If you want to check what other users of this service are shown, visit http://rhumba.gnosio.com/shared/community-member?user%5fid=2604
However, that link points to: http://mytlc.com/shared/com...
Well, the problem with that is that rhumba.gnosio.com is the name of the physical server, but my nsd.tcl file and DNS and the rest of the site appear at mytlc.com -- so I'm wondering where and why ACS is finding that rhumba name. I grep nsd.tcl for rhumba and get nothing...
I had a dream and woke up thinking I figured out how to fix it, but that was just a dream full of false hope. :-P
This was eventually resolved by restarting the server two times. I think that the issue may be with the order that the applications are installed. I really scewed things up on my last server by trying to uninstall (unmount and delete) notifications. I trashed my database but I learned a lot...
