Patch to warn that "ferret_server appears to be already running"

Hi,

I added the following two lines to the top of the start method in
ferret_server.rb (acts_as_ferret)

pid = read_pid_file
raise “ferret_server appears to be already running” if pid

Without this, I found that:

  1. I could do ‘script/ferret_start -e production start’ multiple times
    without getting a warning message.
  2. Running script/ferret_start… a 2nd time managed to kill an
    already existing pid file, but left the old process running.
  3. My capistrano deployments were sometimes confusing (based on the
    above two items)

Update: I now prefer to use $stdout.puts instead of ‘raise’ – because
I don’t consider this situation to be exceptional – and I don’t want
Capistrano to treat this situation as an error and halt.

Hi,

acts_as_ferret’s current trunk already has something similar in
lib/unix_daemon.rb

Cheers,
Jens
