Works now, Tuan fixed it!

Still not sure what *originally* caused the problem overnight (don’t really care!),

but the reason why rebooting and restarting didn’t solve the problem is because I used sudo to start VuFind.

So I had 2 processes running—one owned by root, and another owned by our vufind user.

 

Thanks for the quick replies! This list is invaluable.

If you type:

ps -aux | grep java

Do you see a VuFind process running?

Sometimes if Solr goes really crazy, the process stays alive and prevents you from starting another one. You can try:

kill -9 (process ID from ps output)

You might need to use sudo, depending on your system's setup.

If that fails, rebooting the server might not hurt if that's an option.

Subject: [VuFind-General] Suddenly Solr offline

Hi,

I got into work this morning only to discover that VuFind reports: an error has occurred. Solr is offline.

 

I tried restarting vufind. Nothing. Output looks fairly normal.

I tried going to catalog.winnefox.org:8080/solr/  got a 404 error.

 

I looked at my reindex.log file and didn’t see any errors, but it also didn’t report a successful completion—not sure if it is supposed to, I’ve never looked before.

 

I found suggestions from archives to reindex.  Reindexing will take about an hour, so I was wondering if there were anything else quicker that I could try. 

 

Sincerely,

Karla
