Hello,

I've been using Yaws for my website for several years and have never had any problems until just recently. Whenever I try to start it, it fails, and I get this in the logs:

=ERROR REPORT==== 15-Nov-2013::22:21:05 ===
ERROR: "Failed to start: ~s~n" - [{case_clause,
                                                            {ok,[]}}]


What version of Yaws are you running?

This error message results from not being able to run the yaws_ctl subsystem. Are the various files under your $HOME/.yaws directory writeable and are the directories under there navigable/traversable?

Have you tried running yaws with the -i option to start up an interactive instance? It might show you more error output.
