Subject: Crash: cursor still in progress on cdb XX

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hi, I am using the rolling release installed with easyinstall (refreshed recently) and on the 7th Sept I experienced some kind of problem with the database: after a reboot, citadel failed to start.

 

The error I can see in the logs is as follows (I am attaching the last I have in the logs):

The line that reads "configuration setting c_default_cal_zone is empty, but must not - check your config!" started to appear after I tried to recover using the database_cleanup.sh tool.

I must say I tried both /usr/local/ctdlsupport/bin/db_recover -c and then database_cleanup.sh, without any apparent success.

 

Currently, I am running the previous night backup but it would be helpful if I could reach the messages received/sent which had not been backed up by the time the problem occurred.

Just in case, I do not really need to repair the database, extracting the text would work for me.

 

Is there any way to access the database using db tools,etc. by any chance ?

 

Thanks for your help

Subject: need to change webcit address

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I recently changed the IP address under global settings via the web interface to the local IP address of the machine. It used to be 0.0.0.0. After doing this, i now receive the message "This program was unable to connect or stay connected to the Citadel server. Please report this problem to your system administrator.". How do I change the IP address back to 0.0.0.0, and is what I changed even the issue? I am still able to use my imap client to send and receive emails fine.

 

Thank you

As mentioned before, the mail server is sending and receiving fine and i can use it through an IMAP client, however I cannot the webcit interface from a browser anymore.

romeske:

From the text client, run .ASG (Aide System configuration General).

Cycle through all of the options until you get to the option that reads:

Server IP address (* for 'any'):

And type in "*" or "0.0.0.0" to update your IP address.

Then, to cover your bases, restart Citadel.

Thank you. I was actually able to run ./setup instead since I could not get ./ASG to run. Running ./setup worked and I changed the listen IP to 0.0.0.0 and the problem is solved. thanks again for your help.

I'm on the packaged version on a ubuntu 16-04 LTS machine and have the same or similar issue.
For me it seems that everytime I make changes under Administration/Site Wide Configuration Webcit looses the port number 504 an tries to connect on port 0 after a restart.
However running /usr/lib/citadel-server/setup an changing the port back to 504 solves the issue.

Is this a bug or a missing configuration entry somewhere ?

Thanks for any hints

Subject: ctdlmigrate question regarding the xml file

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I want to migrate from a 32bit CentOS system (citadel-8.24-7.2) to a newer 64bit system (citadel-8.24-10.2). I'm going to use ctdlmigrate.

Can I specify where ctdlmigrate puts the exported xml file?

There is not enough diskspace on the machine that has the current databases to have exported xml of the same size. I was thinking of an nfs mount to a drive with plenty of space to accomodate the export.

Thanks.

ctdlmigrate uses an SSH connection between the two systems to do its thing.
You shouldn't have to store the XML file anywhere.

That having been said ... the export format is more robust and reliable in Citadel 9XX, so you might want to upgrade first. But it sounds like you might be using the RPM packages, and I don't know the current status of those.

Oh. I was thinking that the ctdlmigrate tool does an export of an xml file and then copies it to the target system and then does an import of that xml file. That was the impression I got reading the documentation.


I'm using the rpm files where the latest  is 8.24-10.2

I'm migrating approx 45GB of email.

Would it be safer to manually migrate the databases using sendcommand "MIGR export" and import?

export" and import?

Yes, but keep in mind that if you're on Citadel 8XX instead of Citadel 9XX, there are some other directories you need to bring over:

netconfigs
info
userpics
bio
keys

The contents of those directories are not in any architecture-specific format so you can simply copy them to the new system.

We realized this was awkward so most of that stuff has been integrated into the database as of version 902 (yes we removed the decimal points from the version numbers) so it gets exported with everything else.

Hi,

 

We just installed citadel and we love it so far. But now when we try to edit and existing contact (or example adding an Internet e-mail aliases) it doesn't save. There are no error message the data simply isn't saved. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Subject: SSL_accept failure sometimes, from Outlook on imap 993 SSL

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hi!

I have installed citadel on a debian 8 server. Imap is SSL 993, and SSL certificates are configured using let's encrypt.

Using Mozilla Thunderbird, syncing on my IMAP account works flawlessly everytime.

However, using Microsoft Outlook, sometimes (1/3 times) I get an error 0x800CCC0E when attempting to sync.

On the server side, in /var/log/daemon.log, I get

imap SSL_accept failed: retval=-1, errval=1, err=error:00000001:lib(0):func(0):reason(1)

Now, error 1 is SSL_ERROR_SSL, but I can't seem to be able to get more information.

 

Retrying usually works. Many of my users will be using Outlook to connect.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your help!

I tried to import the xml file using sendcommand -w60 "MIGR import" < /mnt/citbackup/exported.xml

and it runs for a short time and I get this and it stops with the message "Alarm clock"

MIGR import

Any ideas what is going wrong?
