Hey all.


Wiki services is broken after I updated Ruby and Rails in order to install a log reading dashboard.

Now when I start wiki services (via command line), I get Error Reading Settings, and a 503 error when I try to access the wiki via the web.

We have content in the wiki, so I'm hesitant to just blow it away.

Any ideas where to start troubleshooting this?


reddwarf:~ mikec$ ruby --version

reddwarf:~ mikec$ rails --version

sh-3.2# serveradmin status wiki

wiki:state = "STOPPED"

sh-3.2# serveradmin start wiki

wiki:state = "STARTING"

sh-3.2# serveradmin status wiki

wiki:state = "RUNNING"
