13:14 paul hello world...
13:14 paul kados around ?
13:15 kados paul: I'm heading to the beach in San Diego ;-)
13:15 kados paul: but I have a minute for you ;-)
13:15 paul few minuts for a private chat ?
13:15 kados sure
18:31 jamesa good morning all
19:15 jamesa quiet today
19:16 chris yep, its usually pretty quiet
19:16 chris unless there is a meeting on, or someone has something they want to discuss
19:17 chris plus a lot of the northern hemisphere are heading to bed
19:17 chris about now
19:18 jamesa Hello Chris, I have a z3950 daemon problem, do you have experience in this ?
19:33 jamesa anyone available to offer advice on getting the z3950 daemon started ?
19:40 chris hmm i think there was a good writeup on hte mailing list, ill see if i can find it
19:43 chris whats happening when you try to start the daemon?
19:55 jamesa sorry I was elsewhere, trying to start daemon as user apache fails
19:55 jamesa this user has no login, as user apache has no shell defined in /etc/password
19:55 chris right
19:56 jamesa I don't want apache running with a shell for security reasons
19:56 chris yeh
19:56 chris you can start the daemon as any user
19:56 chris as long as that user has read rights to /etc/koha.conf
19:57 chris as thats where it gets the information as to what user and password to connect to mysql with
19:57 chris oh, you'll want that user to be able to write to the directory it logs to as well, usuaully /usr/local/koha/log
19:57 jamesa anyone tried to daemonize it to fall back to apache after starting (like httpd does I think)
19:58 chris not that im aware of
19:58 chris its not long for this world .. koha 3.0 will have a newer much more robust implementation
19:59 chris but if you wanted to do that, im sure all the koha 2.2 users would love you for it, as 3.0 is still a reasonable while off
19:59 jamesa so I create a dedicated user, say zdaemon and put it in the apache group ?
19:59 jamesa ok I could play with it - daemonize I mean
19:59 chris that oughta work, as long as that group can read /etc/koha.conf
20:00 jamesa from the looks of it the daemon is a perl script running in a loop ???
20:01 chris yeah its nothing fancy at all, it was a quick and dirty proof of concept .. and as these things happen it made its way into production :)
20:02 jamesa ok I shall have a play with it, got to get off the phone for a while, (on dial -up )
20:03 chris ahh righto have fun, and good luck
