    LSWS Startup Error

    mistwang,

    I got the following message after doing an install with all the default options. I was using the std i386 package..

    [ERROR] Failed to start lshttpd!

    Fixed in the updated package, please download again or just patch the configuration file around line 134 after </scriptHandler>,
    add
    </scriptHandlerList>

    I've noticed that now when I login to any application on my webserver I get a notice saying that I'm being redirected and I'm forced to click on the link presented in order to get to where I should have been redirected too.

    This doesn't happen in 3.3.15 or the first 4.0 beta. I've looked around for an option to turn this off but there doesn't appear to be one.

    Thanks for the feed back, is the custom 30x error page uses SSI? like 30x.shtml?
    If it is the case, the good news is our SSI implemenation works, the bad news is SSI does not add the location response header properly, need to be fixed.

    I will check.

    Yes, all previous fixes should have been integrated into the 4.0 release.

    If possible, I would like to take a look at your server next week.

    Thank you for the feedback.

    OK, this should have been fixed in the updated 4.0b2 release package. Please download and update again.

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean by SSI. I can say however that after some more testing this isn't happening in all of my applications, only my rails apps are exhibiting this issue.

    Hopefully that's still helpful.

    Is there any simple Rails code to reproduce this problem?

    I'm just using a normal
    Code:
    redirect_to some_url
    in my controller.

    OK, please download 4.0b2 release package again, should have been fixed in the latest update.

    I just tried 4.0b2 and had to immediately roll back to 3.3.15

    Something happened where the last part of pages on all the websites on the server suddenly would never finish rendering and the pages stalled.

    I could see html comments in some cases on the page but that may have been a symptom of incomplete html.

    If you can tell me what to look for to debug the issue I can try installing it again.

    I think the best way to debug this without causing downtime to your site, you can switch to Apache temporarily, run LSWS with a port offset, turn on debug logging, reproduce the problem, send us the log file.
    If you prefer, we can login to your server to take a look as well.

    Thank you for your help.

    Does this mean progress bar is ready? You mentioned in another post that it would be ready when SSI was ready...

    No, progress bar implementation depends on SSI to pull some internal data like data received from web server. Each progress bar implementation require different data, it is going to take a while.
