I've been lurking in this list for some time, with the intention of building
an Interchange site. Last week I got started in earnest, and I've run into
a problem i'm not sure how to approach:
Running on a mandrake 10.0 box, apache, rebuilt perl and IC 5.2.0-1 from
When I access myhost/foundation, I get what appears to be a timeout (30
second delay) and then the message:
We're sorry, the interchange server is unavailable...
We are out of service or may be experiencing high system demand. Please try
Compared to the FAQ (section 2.1, configuration), I've got the following:
perl -V reveals, in part: version 5.8.5 and usethreads=undef
cgi-bin/foundation is: -rwxr -xr -x interch interch
there's nothing in /etc/ with the name socket -- during makecat, I set up
foundation to use INET sockets, if that's related.
My instinct tells me I have some problem with permissions underlying all
this-- restarting the IC server in a shell kicks this error:
Could not open error file '/usr/lib/interchange/error.log':
to report this error:
- - - [30/August/2004:10:26:42 -0500] - - Low traffic settings.
Thanks for reading this far, I hope that one of you may be able to shed some
light on how to approach this problem.
Familiarity with my OS: 3/10
Willingness to learn: 10/10
