#309 closed defect (fixed)

Mgserver doesn't start in daemon mode after reboot (Linux)

After a "make install" on mapguide, I can run this sequence to start and stop MapGuide many times, with no problems:

sudo /usr/local/mapguideopensource/server/bin/ pgrep -f -u root "mgserver daemon" sudo pkill -f -u root "mgserver daemon"

After a reboot, this no longer works; the daemon mode does not start up the server in the background properly (looked through a full ps ax list too). Interactive mode works fine.

If I then run "make install" again and try the above sequence the daemon starts up properly in the background.

Is "make install" setting up an environment variable or something that I'm missing out on?

I'm closing this myself because it's not a configuration I have been able to test against anyway.

This is happening on Ubuntu.

The /var/lock/mgserver directory must exist or daemon-ization fails on Ubuntu.

That directory is cleared on reboot, but nothing re-creates it. The fix is to create /var/lock/mgserver if it doesn't already exist in
