I have a server running 64bit lucid and while trying to get a script to run on boot to start Davmail I appear to have broken something. I have webmin installed but I have been trying to do the majority of things via the command line. I now have davmail starting at boot but a lot of other services don't start anymore, including apache, mysql and webmin. Fortunately SSH still works and I can start apache and webmin from the command line without any problems.
I had a hard drive failure and have recovered (rsync) my backup root filesystem onto a new drive. This all seems to be fine, except that at least two services no longer start: mysql and apache2.I can start successfully both through
although mysql throws a warning about Upstart. Neither start automatically.My system is Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS x86_64. Part of my reolution actions has involved a kernel update to 2.6.32-27-generic.I have tried to resolve the mysql issue first:
sudo update-rc.d -f mysql remove sudo update-rc.d mysql defaults
sudo apt-get remove --purge mysql-server sudo apt-get install mysql-server adding them /etc/init.d/... start commands to /etc/init.d/rc.local script and to a session startup script
checking the services are in rcX.d (using bum and sysv-rc-conf) Ensuring there's a .conf file in /etc/init (which there is).I can't see anything in syslog which would suggest if the system has tried to start these but failed, but then I may be looking in the wrong place. I think they're not starting at all. I wonder if it's something to do with the restore, perhaps symlinks?
I would like to create an alternative booting possibility in my GRUB menu that does not start some services (listed by chkconfig) like cups.
I would use this boot during travel where I surely does not need these services and shorter bootup time is preferable. Permanent removal of such services is not an option because I could not miss them during normal daily work.
I joined a company as an IT staff 2 months plus back. I now encounters a problem that the booting up hangs at the time when it is starting domino services. I have no clue where to look at and duno where to start checking. A little description of the server. : It's a lotus notes domino server for employees webmail service. -> Now it is down. it's an external dns server: recently high volumes of query cache denied surfaces. it's also our proxy server. The only way to get it up and running is to turn off domino service. The system is running still with high volumes of queries I last checked.
Althrough it can boot up now and DNS & proxy are running, I couldn't access the system anymore. It will hang when I attempt to log in from the command prompt. Below is an illustration:
iasaix login: root -> I attempt to log in using root user password: xxxxxxxx -> I keyed in my password -> The cursor comes down and just keeps blinking and nothing happens.
Remote access is not possible as it has sshd disabled by default. Our employees cannot access their webmail now, which is a major issue.
I installed an LAMP Server on 10.10. Additionally a simple Sambaserver and a VPN is integrated. Since 3 days I look at some strange behaviour:
Code: sudo init 6 does not take effect. Nothing happens. Code: sudo reboot is working, but all seems to be so ropy. It takes a significant while, before ssh-session is finally terminated. After the system comes up again, the vpn-client gets not the same IP-address by DHCP-server, but the next following of dhcp-range. That is strange, because no other dhcp-client is busy. After a second reboot I get the correct first IP-address of the dhcp-range. That is reproducible.
cron is not working any more. None of my jobs is being triggered. Nothing is logged in /var/log/syslog any more. Services (apache2, mysql, smbd) are not running at the start. I have to run them up manually. Seems like init is somehow smashed? What is your guess? What futher information do I have to provide for analysis?
so my server is doing fine, but there is one odd thing I would like to fix. When I start and stop services, the CPU is maxed out for about five seconds each time. The services start the same speed, but it still does this. Small things like lm_sensors don't do this, just things like httpd and sendmail. THis server was upgraded to Fedora 11 with a netinstall CD a few months ago.
New Intel x64 system installed with Opensuse 11.1 (like the KDE 3.5 option) and has been running well until today. Booting stops at "starting jexec services". Even while booting under "failsafe" system halts at "starting jexec services". Unable to boot to command prompt to attempt repair. Ran "repair" option from install disc with no good results. Still will not boot past jexec services.
I recently discovered upstart is launching sshd on my machine even though I disabled it with `sudo update-rc.d -f ssh remove`. I tried to find a way to prevent upstart from launching ssh by default, but the best I can think of is removing /etc/init/ssh.conf (I just uninstalled openssh-server).I'd like to disable it without doing this, though. This would make it easier to enable sshd when I need it
Until Karmic Koala I could enable/disable services at startup (such as ssh or mysql) by issuing a update-rc.d -f someservice remove. On reboot, it would no longer run, and I could re-enable if necessary by, for example, running a update-rc.d someservice default.
However, it seems that now in Lucid Lynx this no longer works. For example, if I do a nmap localhost I can see that the ports for the respective services are open, therefore I assume they are likely running (which an attempted access confirms). For example, if I do a /etc/init.d/ssh stop, the ssh service is respawned. I've found that service ssh stop or initctl stop ssh effectively stops the service (i.e. it is no longer "respawned" if "killed"). But so far I haven't found documentation that conclusively indicates how to disable the service start on (re)boot.
So I ask you, what is now the currently "canonical" or "standard" way to enable/disable these services (particularly ones such as ssh or mysql) from starting on boot on Ubuntu? I'd like to avoid having to remove the respective packages if possible (as some posts suggest), since in some occasions I'm interested in manually running those services -- therefore, having to install/uninstall packages is impractical.
I just installed the LAMP server on my system then rebooted, expecting the daemons HTTPD, MYSQLD, FTPD, etc. to start. When they didn't, I didn't panic I just attempted to run "sudo service start httpd". Surprise, suprise - "command not found". how do I start these daemons?
I've installed Sun Java, tomcat6 and tomcat6-admin on 10.04 server 64-bit. By default, tomcat is configured to run as the tomcat6 user. Everything runs just fine on tcp/8080 as initially configured. Modifying the connector port in /etc/tomcat6/server.xml to anything below 1024 (e.g. port 80) results in:
This all begs the question... do you *really* have to run tomcat as root to bind to a well-known port? I.e. is there really no way for tomcat to start as root, bind to a privileged port and then drop privs?
I need to copy files over from a Solaris 2.6 box to my machine running Centos 5.3. I have to use RCP since the Solaris box is so old that is the only inter-machine copy command available.How do I enable rshd services on my centos box? Detailed explanation would be apperciated since I am from the ssh generation.
So I want to get mount/umount option under right click services menu. I went to Dolphin -> Settings -> Configure Dolphin -> Services -> Download New Services and from there I installed KDE CDEmu Emulator and MountISO. But neither of them is showing up in actual context menu. Neither in Dolphin -> Settings -> Configure Dolphin -> Services for that matter. I tried to install them as normal user and as a root. I went to have a peak in /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/ but they aren't there as well... It's just me or lots of things seems to be not quite working in 11.3?
I installed OS11.4 on my old laptop, Compaq Armada E500., 512MB RAM, ATI Rage Mobility. During installation I chose "minimal server" and added some development packages, lxde and a little more. I chose to start in runlevel 3 which is full networking without X. Still, when computer is booted it tries to start Xorg which doesn't work because of some problem w driver. The start-up seems to stop there, it never loads completely - seems most things in runlevel 3 are not started (see below) I can manually login on laptop and fix it - but never permanently, same thing again after reboot.
I have checked /etc/inittab & yast - both states default runlevel is 3. I have checked services to be started both directly, browsing directory /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/, and with YaST, it is very clear X should not load during boot. But, as said, it does.. I don't really care about the driver problem right now, I can fix that later when I have more time. So how do I stop X from getting started automatically?
More info, if needed: The installation also stopped with message on tty1 "Starting YaST2" and tty8 showing errors with graphics driver (mach64). The system seemed to be installed though, so I simply rebooted (issuing "reboot" from tty2).
I'm not completely sure where it stops, network is configured but keyboard is wrong and mysql & everything after is not started, so somewhere between S02network and S06kbd. I'm going to use it as a server for testing purposes so no X is actually needed - however I do want to have X & lxde installed just in case, my Internet connection at home is terribly slow so I need most things I might need in the future installed today.
I recently upgraded from Karmic to Lucid via the Update Manager. I would like to upgrade further by switching from 32 Bit to 64 Bit. I downloaded the Lucid 64 Bit ISO and wrote an install disk. When I reboot the computer with the install disk nothing happens.
I am running ubuntu 9.10 with the latest patches and all the prerelase patches. At some point and i am not sure when something broke and none off the services start during the boot. Also the virtual consoles do not start. The only services that start are the one that are controlled by the gnome session. In addition i cannot start the rescue mode. It stops loading at same point where the console should show up. I am guessing that the problem is related to the upstart but i am not sure. I never ever had problems with boot in linux and this is very frustrating. I feel like i am running windows and dont know how to troubleshoot. I cannot see anything in the log that would give me a hint? I dont know where too look. I tried to activate the bootlogd but it does not work. Probably beacause the services dont start correctly. Something broke and one of the updates must changed something but i dont know what and where? Anyone can recommend where to look? How do i see the interactive boot? I tried remove the splash and quiet from grub config but i could not see anything there. I got too fast to the x login.
I am working on a notebook which has both gnome and wmii. I am trying to find a way to script stopping various services when booting into wmii however the "service xxx stop" requires sudo..Is there a way to allow a user to manage services without the need for sudo (aside from password-less sudo)? I assume there are permissions complications with writing the PIDs, etc. Is there a 'simple' solution? Even possible passwordless sudo just for the 'service' command?
I recently became responsible for a server running Ubuntu 10.04. I am trying to figure out how its outbound mail service is setup. Everything is working fine now, I just want to document how it is setup so if I need to rebuild the box I can do so without too much trouble when the pressure is on. It is a pretty basic setup, the only outbound mail gets sent from php scripts, the server does not receive incoming messages. Is there a place I can look to see what service is sending outgoing messages?
