First day my site goes live and it’s down. Fun fun.
I’m on dreamhost, and the problem seems to happen when I update the code
and kill the fcgi processes to pick up the changes. It’s happened twice
today; first time it came back after an hour or so; this time not so
here’s the restart script:
killall -USR1 dispatch.fcgi
Here’s the error in error.log:
[Tue Jan 02 12:13:41 2007] [error] [client 22.214.171.124] FastCGI: comm
with (dynamic) server
“/home/wmnf_admin/wmnf.org/wmnf/public/dispatch.fcgi” aborted: (first
read) idle timeout (60 sec)
[Tue Jan 02 12:13:41 2007] [error] [client 126.96.36.199] FastCGI:
incomplete headers (0 bytes) received from server
Here’s the last few lines of fastcgi.crash.log:
[02/Jan/2007:10:58:38 :: 8165] starting
[02/Jan/2007:11:55:26 :: 24649] starting
[02/Jan/2007:12:03:11 :: 24649] asked to terminate ASAP
[02/Jan/2007:12:03:11 :: 8165] asked to terminate ASAP
[02/Jan/2007:12:03:11 :: 24649] terminated gracefully
[02/Jan/2007:12:03:12 :: 8165] terminated gracefully
So, it terminated but isn’t restarting.
I’ve seen recommendations elsewhere to clear out the rails session dir;
I’ve done that with no change.
Any ideas? So far no response from dreamhost support…
