Running webmo pro 17.0.012p with Gaussian09 d.01 on IBM x3755 server (4 AMD 6282SE). Did a completely fresh install of OS (Fedora 26), Gaussian and WebMO a few days ago. Job submissions for a single processor works great, but any job asking for more than one processor sits as "QUEUED 1/1" forever. Same Gaussian input runs fine on command line. Thoughts?

Make sure the number of cores on the server is set correct. This is set in the "System Manager". It can also be set for each remote server in the "Remote Server Manager".

Thanks. I had set it in the Gaussian settings, but not in system manager.

I installed webmo on macbook pro running macOS 10.12.6 but got this error; "2017-08-12 19:56:07.878 defaults[4559:569196] Could not write domain /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.httpd; exiting". This was after executing the command "sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.httpd Disabled -bool false" given in the webmo installation guide. I continued with the installation anyway and the other steps worked just fine. Now when I try running the jobs the remain in the queue forever. Any pointers on how I can resolve this problem?

Note that the 'sudo defaults...' is only for older versions of OS X.

Are you trying to run a multi-core job? Note that you need to set the number of cores on your computer in the 'system manager', or the jobs may not be able to be schedule for execution.
