Subject: problems with new restart procedures for elogd and apache 

Same thing again todaysad. So I renamed the /etc/init/elog.conf so that it doesn't keep respawning bootlessly. Until then restart elog using the start script in /cvs/cds/caltech/elog/ as usual.

I'll let EQ debug when he gets back - probably we need to pause the elog respawn so that it waits until nodus is up for a few minutes before starting.

Since the nodus upgrade, Eric/Diego changed the old csh restart procedures to be more UNIX standard. The instructions are in the wiki.

After doing some software updates on nodus today, apache and elogd didn't come back OK. Maybe because of some race condition, elog tried to start but didn't get apache. Apache couldn't start because it found that someone was already binding the ELOGD port. So I killed ELOGD several times (because it kept trying to respawn). Once it stopped trying to come back I could restart Apache using the Wiki instructions. But the instructions didn't work for ELOGD, so I had to restart that using the usual .csh script way that we used to use.
