foswiki_irc3Moin! :) [08:11]
BirgitNietschIs anybody awake? I need a hint on how to debug that: "caught SIGTERM, shutting down" in the apache error log. perl scripts only run on command line, not on my web site any more. :( [08:18]
jastsomething is terminating apache, apparently... is there any more information in the surrounding lines of the logfile? [08:20]
BirgitNietschNot much. mod_fcgid/2.3.6 mod_ssl/2.2.22 OpenSSL/1.0.1e configured -- resuming normal operations
Apache itself is up and running. as long as I don't call any pages with scripts
[08:22]
jastdoes the kernel/dmesg logfile show anything? SIGTERM can happen due to an out of memory situation, for example [08:23]
BirgitNietschmompls.
can't find anything suspicious there.
[08:24]
jastanother option might be PAM limits (usually configured in /etc/security/limits.conf and limits.d)
in principle any process running with kill capabilities (usually anything running as root) has the ability to kill processes, so there are many possible (if few plausible) causes
[08:27]
BirgitNietschperhaps I should tell you a few things first: it is a vitual machine, apache/foswiki is the only stuff running there, and it has been happily running during the last two years until suddenly (perhaps after an update) it stopped working during the last week
and i have already done some tests, like deaktivating rewrites just to see if the apache delivers normal html pages on https. which it does.
I also tried running bin/view on the command line. it produced the code for the start page.
[08:30]
jastare you using foswiki with FastCGI, mod_perl or normal CGI? [08:32]
BirgitNietschhow can I see that? [08:32]
jastin apache's config file for foswiki, is there any mention of 'fcgi' or 'perl-script'? [08:34]
BirgitNietschSetHandler cgi-script [08:35]
jastprobably normal CGI, then...
which OS/distribution (+version) are you running?
[08:35]
BirgitNietsch(that was from the apache configuration)
Sorry, I'm a bit lost and have to look it up ... mompls
[08:35]
jaston linux, lsb_release -a often outputs this information [08:38]
BirgitNietschDebian 7.11
and apache/2.2.22
[08:39]
jasthm, I don't have a Debian 7 handy to look at [08:41]
BirgitNietschI think the cgi-module crashes, but how can I verify that? [08:42]
jastgood question
you could raise apache's log level to 'debug' (LogLevel in apache.conf), that will give you a *lot* more output
[08:52]
BirgitNietschdoes debug give me more info than warn? [08:53]
jastlots [08:54]
BirgitNietschMmm... child pid ... exit signal Segmentation fault(11) ... lots of them ...
but since all of them have been terminated, who died?
md_fcgid ist fast_cgi, correct?
[08:59]
jastI'm fairly sure they shouldn't be segfaulting, though
it's one implementation of fastcgi, yes
[09:01]
BirgitNietschHm. can I use a different cgi module? [09:03]
jastwith cgi-script you're not using mod_fcgid... and there isn't really any choice for normal CGI [09:09]
BirgitNietschOK, where on foswiki.org can I look up how to configure that? [09:13]
jaststarting with Foswiki 2.0, FastCGI support is bundled; in older versions you have to install the FastCGIEngineContrib extension
and then on Support.ApacheConfigGenerator you can generate a config file for FastCGI
the bot was supposed to automatically link it...
http://foswiki.org/Support/ApacheConfigGenerator
you may also have to enable mod_fcgid in apache (a2enmod fcgid)
[09:18]
BirgitNietschThanks. I will have a look at that.
where can I see my Foswiki Version in the files?
[09:22]
jastmaybe there's a better place, but you can search lib/Foswiki.pm for RELEASE [09:34]
BirgitNietschFoswiki-1.1.9 [09:36]
........ (idle for 35mn)
Ehem. I think I have to talk to someone here. it rather seems I cannot contact the ldap server. deactivating all auth options and calling a hello world script did the trick to find that out. sorry for all those dumb questions. [10:11]
................... (idle for 1h34mn)
OK. This was it: they simply changed the name of our AD Server and didn't tell me. Wiki is up and running again. Phew. :)
BirgitNietsch waves good bye!
@jast and thanks :)

jmk0Item14196 is now closed. Hopefully I'm not violating any procedure, I figured nobody else really needed to get involved :-P [20:03]
gac410Nope that's perfectly fine. Done with fixes on extensions, just close. Though some would wait for the actual "release" and upload to the extensions web. But regardless, it's fine what you did. [20:04]
jmk0in this case it was only adding readme files [20:05]
gac410The only tasks that have to go through the "release" process - are tasks against core, or the default extensions that "Follow the release process" [20:05]
jmk0k
after a year of basically nothing, my github account is getting a bit busy :)
[20:05]
gac410:) [20:07]
