  • Palo server on Linux : explainations needed

    Hello,

    I installed and used palo with windows XP on my peronal computer with no problems.

    I am now installing it on my linux (debian) hosted server.

    1) i copied the "palo_1.0a.tar.bz2" file to the server to this directory "/home/web/www/test/palo/paloserver/"

    2) i created a subdirectory "/home/web/www/test/palo/paloserver/server/"

    3) i executed "tar xjf palo_tp2.tar.bz2 -C server" from the directory "/home/web/www/test/palo/paloserver/"

    4) i modified "/home/web/www/test/palo/paloserver/server/run/data-dist/auth.xml" to put my own username and pw_hash
    (pw_hash crypted with ovh.com/cgi-bin/fr/crypt.pl)

    5) i executed "bash startpalo.sh" from the directory "/home/web/www/test/palo/paloserver/"
    (=> no reply !) (i saw no process running !)

    6) i executed "bash stoppalo.sh" from the directory "/home/web/www/test/palo/paloserver/"
    (just to check if something was running)
    (=> reply "./server/palo: no process killed")

    My questions :

    Q1) what must i do to have palo server running ? ?(

    Q2) what must i enter in the login parameters to make "/home/web/www/test/php/palo_commands.php" work online ? ?(

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Go into the directory where startpalo.sh is located.

    Then try the command:

    Source Code

    1. ./startpalo.sh



    check with "ps -ef | grep palo" whether a process exists or not.

    if not, check again for the logfile. if there is non, go back to your palo directory and run the command:

    Source Code

    1. ./server/palo run ./server/run/data-dist


    This should start (or even try to start) the palo server, but ... without using a logfile. The job runns in foreground, not in background. Any messages about the server should be shown on your screen.

    Maybe another hint: did you read the Readme.Server ?


    requirements:
    - libexpat.so.1 must be installed (preferable in /usr/lib).
    'find / -name libexpat.so.1 2>/dev/null' should give a result.
    - libpthread.so.0 must be installed (preferable in some subdirectory of /lib).
    'find / -name libpthread.so.0 2>/dev/null' should give a result.
    - the system must be configured for UTF8 support.
    - bzip2 and tar must be installed (only needed for installation).


    You may wanna check for those files ... please read following thread (second post), aphol gave a hint in relation to that lib's for debian.
    forum.palo.net/thread.php?threadid=99&sid=&hilightuser=23

    Maybe this all helps.

    Good luck, and may tell us if you got it running.

    ReadYa

    Mike
