Just tried doing an Easy Install of Citadel on Red Hat. Still getting the following error:

Error

Setup could not connect to a running Citadel server.: No such file or directory citadel-admin.socket

 

Not sure what's causing this error. Please advise.

Does this error appear only on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or is it something else?

and got :

Then tried .\database_cleanup.sh and got this:


Citadel Database Cleanup
---------------------------

This script exports, deletes, and re-imports your database.  If you have
any data corruption issues, this program may be able to clean them up for you.

Please note that this program does a Berkeley DB dump/load, not a Citadel
export.  The export files are not generated by the Citadel export module.

WARNING #1:
  MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR DATA BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS.  There is no guarantee
  that this will work (in case of disk full, power failure, program crash)!

WARNING #2:
  citserver must NOT be running while you do this.

WARNING #3:
  Please try "cd /usr/local/citadel/data; /usr/local/ctdlsupport/bin/db_recover -c" first. Run citserver afterwards to
  revalidate whether its fixed or not, No news might be good news. Use this
  tool only if that one fails to fix your problem.

WARNING #4:
  You must have an amount of free space on your disk that is at least twice
  the size of your database, see the following output:
  (for substantially better performance you should specify a location that is
   on another disk than /usr/local/citadel/data)

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev            961M     0  961M   0% /dev

database_cleanup.sh looks like it exited prematurely. It should dump far more than five databases, and it should then load them all back in.

I ran the db_baclup and db_restore commands manually and citserver has now started successfully.
Thanks for pointing out the failure.

Excellent! Happy to hear that it worked, and we'll take a peek to see if there's a reason the script stopped early.

Ok, I don't have access to that operating system since it costs a lot of money, but we can try a few things.

First, see if you can start Citadel Server from the command line:

cd /usr/local/citadel
./citserver -x9

If it looks like it's running, try running setup from another terminal. If it crashes, please post the last screenful of output.

First of all, thanks for your response. I had not seen it till after trying to install again and got back the same error indicated in previous message. So I followed your instructions and this is what I got back. I also checked the status of citadel service which indicated that it failed to start as you can see.

hi guys

when I  putty into my server I get these broadcast messages

Message from syslogd@citadel at Jun 16 18:00:58 ...
 citserver[4312]: db: cdb_store(8): BDB0075 DB_PAGE_NOTFOUND: Requested page not found

THis is clearly not good!

so the dump and restore of the database didnt seem to have fixed my issue, and I know if I stop citserver it wont start up properly

any Ideas on how I should progress?

Regards

Kim

Some further thoughts,

When I set this Citadel server up a few years ago I used a set of migrate commands that dumped the database as XML and then imported the XML,

does anyone know how I can find those commands?

I also recall that because of the size of the database, and the slowness of the servers I had to set a timeout parameter otherwise the actions failed,

but of course I dodnt write anything down so I cant remember what I did!

The program is called "ctdlmigrate" and you run it on the *receiving* system.

And I have good news: this program was substantially re-engineered last year and it is far more performant and reliable than it used to be. We removed the troublesome SSH transport and replaced it with a direct Citadel-to-Citadel connection.

Here's a documentation page showing the instructions, including a pretty screenshot!

Thanks for this, however I have an older version of the server running (929), and the documents suggest that the sending and receiving servers should be the same version.  Also on a different note I have some Thunderbird users who have accessed the Citade server as a IMAP server, they ran compact which seemed to delete messages on the citadel server, have these messages really been deleted or are they still i the database somewhere, and can they be recovered?

It appears Citadel did not install any email services.

Do I need to install Dovecot/Postfix to complete the email solution?

Someone smarter than me about the inner workings will reply soon i'm sure, but no you dont need to install a mail service as email is integrated.

That is what I figured based on what I read but the ports are not open....

If citserver failed to bind ports it will tell you in its log. I see that you have citserver answering on port 5222, which is the only port >=1024 that it uses. This suggests to me that you did not start citserver as root and therefore it could not bind to any of the low numbered ports.

Hmm. I am unable to reproduce this error. If you are running a Citadel built from source code (that includes Easy Install), perhaps you might consider running the Docker version? It's pre-built and runs wherever containers can run, and can't be foiled by the little differences between Linux distributions.

Awesome! It was SELinux doing its thing. I set it to permissive and everything works great. Whatever bug I was hitting before with LDAP is now gone too! Thanks for the awesome alternative to corporate email!
