When I try to upload a PPT I get the follow message:
"The document conversion failed with error: document id generation failed"
I suspect the problem is because the Dimdim Media Server is not running. Am I correct?
And I think is because the zdaemon. Because I try to execute:
zdaemon -p \"python /usr/local/dimdim/Mediaserver/mods/interface.py\" start
And this process doesn't exists.
To check Dimdim Media server status, you need to check if port 4000 is listening to.
This can be done by netstat -an | grep 4000.
If its not running, you need to start the Dimdim Media server component seperately
zdaemon -p "python /usr/local/dimdim/Mediaserver/mods/interface.py" start
Please note that from perl script, you need a \ in front of " not for running the command directly from a terminal.
Oh sorry....I executed the right command.
But after that, I checked the process:
# ps -ef | grep zdaemon
root 11078 1 0 19:28 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/zdaemon -S schema.xml -b 10 -s zdsock -m 022 -x 0,2 python
After 2 seconds, I checked again and the process disappear!!!!
I couldn't find nothing inside the logs.
Do you have some idea?
Run Dimdim media server as `python /usr/local/dimdim/Mediaserver/mods/interface.py` and paste me the complete output of what you are getting on the Dimdim media server while you upload a ppt.
I am having the same issue. Here is the output from my system when I run 'python /usr/local/dimdim/Mediaserver/mods/interface.py':
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/dimdim/Mediaserver/mods/interface.py", line 288, in ?
TypeError: start() got an unexpected keyword argument 'blocking'
I lose for not being able to read. I installed CherryPy 3.1.0, went back and installed 3.0.1 and now my uploads work fine.
Does anyone know if there is a file size limit still on 4.5? I can't seem to upload powerpoints larger than 20Mb. Is there some way to increase this limit?
we are unable to upload ppt's and pdf's to the open source.
