Site plugins not working for me on 0.17.9


(Alex Piggott) #1

I must be doing something stupid, but I can't work out what!
Suggestions on what that might be or how to debug further much
appreciated...

See the following gist: https://gist.github.com/1364037

I install the plugin (happy), check I am running 0.17.9 (I'm upgrading
my pseudo-production environment from 0.16.x) and then try to access
the bigdesk site plugin (the behavior vs elasticsearch-head is
identical)

Either via curl or firefox I get a blank response back from the
server.

Any ideas?

(Looking at the source code, I can't see any useful logging statements
I could turn on. Next step would be sticking some print statements in
I guess, so I'm hoping someone else has had a similar problem and was
more competent at fixing it!)

Strange..., just double checked fresh 0.17.9 install and it works (its very
important to have the last /, but you have it in the URL). Not sure whats
missing, can you try on your own dev box and see if it works?

Thanks for the sanity check and suggestion ... for some reason my /etc/
init.d/elasticsearch file was setting es.path.home parameter twice on
the command line, the second time to "".

I install/upgrade using Tavisto's RPMs, which have some "noreplace"
clauses, so probably you can break the upgrade with suitable changing
of config files between versions!
