    We just installed Dimdim V3.5 beta on CentOS.  We installed ReadME steps and started the system.

    We are experiencing the following:

    startDimdim produces no errors
    localhost:80 - 500 Internal Server Error
    localhost:8080 - Works Fine
    No Desktop sharing
    No Presentation/pdf sharing

    After some research we found out that
      scgi server on port 4000 is not listening.   (download and installed python-scgi - no success)
      soffice is not loaded ps -ax

    Can anyone help?

     
    • Hello,

      Changing only the port from lighttpd is not sufficient. Kindly follow the steps provided in the post http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=2047165&forum_id=611234 and let me know if you are facing with any issues.

        Hi Rajesh,

        port 8080 is where  localhost/dimdim is proxied to.  That is to confirm that the media server is working.

        We did not change anything in the original configuration, and still have nothing running on port 4000.  Is this the port used by scgi server? How can I check why it is not loaded?

          I would like to correct my previous message, port 8080 is where the conference server is running, media server does not seem to be running.

      Hi Rajesh,

      are you suggesting bypassing lighttpd ? 

       
    • Hi,

      No, i am not suggesting to bypass lighttpd. lighttpd by default runs on port 80. If you want to run lighty on a different port, you need to modify some more files as mentioned in the forum post.

    • Hi,

      Try the following and see if the server is running

            zdaemon -p "python /usr/local/dimdim/Mediaserver/mods/interface.py" status

      If its not running, start the zdaemon process

             zdaemon -p "python /usr/local/dimdim/Mediaserver/mods/interface.py" start

      Could you please check and see if port 4000 is listening? Between are you trying the tar ball or the vmware image?

        Hi Rajesh,

        thanks for your help, it seems that the zdaemon is starting and at a certain point stops. 

        To answer your question, I am trying the tarball.  I also noted that the readme is stating that it runs only on 32bit.  I am using CentOS 5.1 64bit on VM, so I am not sure whether this is the cause.

        Thanks
