I need a help to solve this problem:


When I click on the “host summary” link, the browser remains hanged for ever.

The “Status” page, the “Edit config”, the “Edit Hosts”, “Admin Options” and below work correctly.

The problems are on the pages “Host Summary” and when from the drop down list I choose a host.


I am on backuppc version 3.2.1


I did some debugging (running index.cgi with the perl debugger “perl -d ./index.cgi action=summary”)

And I found that it remain hanged at the following line



75:         flock(LOCK, LOCK_EX) if open(LOCK, "$s->{TopDir}/pc/$host/LOCK");



I guess there is something strange in the file LOCK but if I run an ls –l I get

-rw-rw-rw- 1 backuppc backuppc 0 2011-07-28 23:23 /var/lib/backuppc/pc/<host name>/LOCK


It was working, then I had a problem on the RAID and I just rebuilt it from scratch.


If I delete the LOCK file it works, I can see the summary page but then this file is recreated at the next backup and it hangs again.


Is there anybody who can help me solve the problem?
