No DB access for web admin and DCERouter doesn't start
« on: March 29, 2010, 10:40:12 am »
Yesterday my system filled up to 100% on the root partition and stopped working. I cleared out some files and rebooted, but when I tried to access the web admin I got:

Fatal error: mysql error: [1044: Access denied for user ''@'localhost' to database 'pluto_main'] in CONNECT(, '****', '****', pluto_main) in /var/www/lmce-admin/include/adodb/adodb-errorhandler.inc.php on line 77

This seemed very odd! I went into mysql and added permissions:

grant all on pluto_main.* to  ''@'localhost';
flush privileges;

The webadmin then gave me a similar message for pluto_media, so I repeated the above for that database.

Now the web admin worked! Phew. But, when I restarted the system again the DCERouter does not start. I see the following in the Launch Manager log:

Hmm. So I manually started the DCERouter and the App_Server in separate terminal sessions and a lot of stuff comes to life, however I see some stuff in their logs I have never seen before.

It looks to me like something odd is going on. Can anyone comment on this?

Thanks,

basically, the /etc/pluto.conf file has been truncated. it contains stuff specific to the system so its pretty difficult to repair. reinstalling is probably the best option.

Oh, yes, it does look short! Any ideas how this has happened? Is this a common problem? Should I file a ticket to improve logging in this situation?

Can you send me yours? It's worth a go...!

Thanks,

Chris

the problem is probably because of too much logging. there are a couple bugs that can lead to logs getting out of control, such as unplugging a hid device (keyboard or mouse) while the system is running. some other process apparently continually writes the pluto.conf file, so when there is no space it ends up getting truncated.
for what its worth, heres my config file:

# Pluto config file
MySqlHost = localhost
MySqlUser = root
MySqlPassword =
MySqlDBName = pluto_main
DCERouter = localhost
MySqlPort = 3306
DCERouterPort = 3450
PK_Device = 1
Activation_Code = 1111
PK_Installation = 1004672
PK_Users = 1
PK_Distro = 17
Display = 0
SharedDesktop = 1
OfflineMode = false
#<-mkr_b_videowizard_b->
UseVideoWizard = 1
#<-mkr_b_videowizard_e->
LogLevels = 1,5,7,8
#ImmediatelyFlushLog = 1
AutostartCore=1
AutostartMedia=1
PlutoVersion = 2.0.0.44.10011622689
Bookmark_Media = 4,5
RA_CheckRemotePort = 1
TimeZoneSet = 1
AVWizardOverride = 0
AVWizardDone = 1
FirstBoot = false
DesktopActivated = 1
DVDKeysCache = /home/.dvdcss
DisableFirewall=1
LastSearchTokenUpdate=1269922924

some stuff you may have to pull out of the database such as the installation id.

this also worked for me. Sudden power loss then no db / web access. Following these steps fixed the problem.

*Note: i left installation id empty.

I am curious as to why the pluto.conf file was truncated.  Does it get overwritten each time there is a reload router?

This thread saved me a bunch of time as I didn't have to rebuild my core from scratch. I copied the pluto config file above, got the PK_Installation and PlutoVersion values from the DB, and it worked great from there. Thank you merkur2k!
