Troubleshooting

Installation

On windows I get the following error "jvm 1 | java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError
org/tanukisoftware/wrapper/WrapperSimpleApp"
Add the following to wrapper-slave.conf wrapper-master.conf and wrapper.conf (if you don't have a wrapper.conf then don't worry about this)
  1. Working Dir
wrapper.working.dir=../
Put it at the begining of the file.

Site Usage

Why are some files appended by .conflict my ftp? What are these *.conflict files?
These files are left by the archive plugin, they come about when the same file name exists on at least two slaves, but the size varies.

fix: Try just deleting the .conflict file. The full size, regularly named file should still exist on the original slave that it was archived from.


Why are some files appended -OFFLINE?
These files are located on slaves that are currently offline. When the slave comes back online, the files will once again be available. If the slave is permanently gone, use the delslave command to permanently remove it, changing all -OFFLINE files to -MISSING files.


Why are some files appended -MISSING?
Files marked -MISSING are files which are included in the .sfv file, but are not located on the site yet for whatever reason.
