View Full Version : Problem starting slimserver with slimserver.sh on FreeBSD

Using FreeBSD 5.4 RELEASE, Slimserver 6.1.1 from the ports collection.

Up to this point I've been starting slimserver from the command line
directly (/usr/local/slimserver.pl -daemon) and it runs fine.

I decided to use the /usr/local/etc/rc.d startup script to automate
things and it doesn't work.

When I issue (as root) '/usr/local/etc/rc.d/slimserver.sh start', I get
a "starting slimserver" response and then see the Perl app in the Top
command... seems normal. Problem is that when I try to access the
slimserver web page the app dies.

Can you start it with this command?


(or wherever the script lives)

There should be some log out there that could indicate what's happening.

I'm not using the ports since I feel like it is too far out of date. I'm using one of the previous 6.2 builds and it works pretty fine imho.
