The installation of WebMo worked very well. But the testing with the first jobs doesn't work as expected. A new job is created (either for mopac or gamess) and submitted, but it doesn't get calculated. The Status shows "Queued(1/1)" and the System Manager shows "Queue enabled" and "Daemonstatus running".

Where do we have to take a look at????

Interesting. I've never seen that happen before. On what OS is your WebMO server running?

Please email your diagnostic information (by running diagnose.pl, from the WebMO cgi-bin directory) to schmidt@webmo.net. Also, send me the contents of your 'jobs' and 'queue' file from your WebMO user directory.

I have the exact same problem with my WebMO install. I have version 5.0.009p running on a Dual Opteron running RHEL 4.0 AS for AMD64 with Apache 2.0.52 and perl5.

Any help is appreciated. I will send the information that you previously requested of an Anonymous forum poster.

In both of the above casesthe hostname of the server was not specified during setup.
(Perhaps the setup program could not determine the hostname.) You can
manually enter it by hand, it this should solve the program.

First, locate the WebMO configuration file. It should be in your WebMO
cgi-bin directory,

Open up this file, and you will need to change two entries. Change the
entry 'host', to the fully qualified domain name of your server. For


and then similarly change the field 'servers' to

servers="server.chem.wisc.edu,0" (note the trailing zero).

I believe this will solve your problem. As it is now, WebMO doesn't know
where to run the jobs!

I have a similar problem running MOPAC2009 with WebMO. The program tells me that the calculations were running, but in fact, MOPAC was not started, so the time counter stayed at 0.0 sec.
I'm using the latest versions of both programs with Windows 7 Professional 64bit system.

Make sure you are using the MOPAC2009 "for all windows" version. This is the only version which is command-line compatible.
