Closed, ResolvedPublic


Steps to reproduce

  1. So far I've tried:
    1. {home}/access.log
    2. ~/access.log
  2. $ webservice --backend=gridengine lighttpd start

Expected behavior
It should work per

Current behavior
Currently it fails like this:

2019-10-31 19:30:19: (log.c.217) server started 
2019-10-31 19:30:19: (log.c.171) opening errorlog '~/access.log' failed: No such file or directory
2019-10-31 19:30:19: (server.c.1269) Configuration of plugins failed. Going down.

Either fix the manual with correct variable declaration, or fix the lighttpd module causing this

On irc, @Dvorapa reported that accesslog.filename = "/data/project/kmlexport/access.log does work. This may be a matter of poor documentation.

Documentation updated:

@Phamhi I did not test further to see if the original instructions you wrote were correct but only for some version of lighttpd newer than we have on the grid engine backend.

Phamhi claimed this task.

Thanks for the confirmation.
