Ezfind start/stop script for RHEL does not work

Monday 22 October 2012 10:29:14 am - 4 replies

While migrating ezfind from Debian to RHEL 6.3, we realized that the starting script: 

does not work properly:

* it does not remove /var/run/ on a stop

* the usual RHEL output of a start/stop daemon script ([OK], [FAILED], and so on) ends up in a file named "1"

do any of you have an updated/corrected version of this script, or can suggest corrections?

You should probably head on to Jira (ex-Wit) and file a bug there. Maybe you will find the problem is already known (and if you're very lucky there might even be a patch proposed)

And icing on the cake: if you have a working patch yourself, you can directly push it to the eZ Find code, through a pull request.

Ok, here's teh cake:

Plz test it as much as you can before I send in the pull request.

So far, I've tested it only on Centos 6.3.


- allow usage of /etc/sysconfig/solr for putting configs (avoid editing this file by itself; allows adding parameters for the JVM as well)

- now gives better diagnostic messages when calling stop and solr is not running

- the outputted line when calling reload has slightly changed as well

PR done (and 2 jira issues opened as well)
