A little hiccup for a Monday. Not quite sure what went wrong, but in the middle of the morning our Open-Xchange server went belly up. No warning, no updates applied since the start of last week – just refused to handle user logins and dropped all existing sessions.
Easy enough to track down – the Java servlet couldn’t create a connection to the Postgresql database. After a bit of head scratching trying to figure out, simply re-installing ‘postgresql-jdbc‘ did the trick:
yum remove postgresql-jdbc
yum install postgresql-jdbc
followed by a restart of Open-Xchange:
Bit of a puzzler as to why it suddenly stopped, as the correct PATH locations were still set and there hadn’t been any Java updates applied since the server was installed a couple of months back, but at least everything’s back to normal now.
Just got to figure out how to install Debian onto our new HP DL-320 webserver when they (quite helpfully) don’t ship with a CD drive… A nice ploy by HP to get you to then purchase a hot-swapable drive for Â£70-odd maybe?
