WebMO 17 Install

Post by layfield »

Is there an archive of installation instructions? I have an Enterprise version of WebMO 17.

I am trying to re-install WebMO on a Rocks 6.2 cluster (based on CentOS 6.6). When i follow the Apache (v. 2.2.15) instructions, I get an error saying that there is an internal server error.

I am not sure if these are related issues but I am trying to chase down all possible issues.

Thanks!

There is no difference in the installation procedure for WebMO on Linux between versions 17 and 20.

For completeness, however, the version 17 instructions are attached.

Thank you for the instructions. Is it possible that the Apache settings have changed between versions?

When i remove the line "Require method GET POST OPTIONS PUT DELETE PATCH' from my httpd.conf file, I am able to get the site to load and it appears that i can get full functionality when i run on the headnode. I am unable to connect to the SGE queueing system.

I thank you for your consideration as this is likely not a WebMO issue but I appreciate your answer.

Thank you!

You should first ensure that you can access SGE and submit jobs from the command line as the user 'webmo'. If that fails, you would need to consult the SGE docs. Once that is working I can assist with WebMO integration.

Thank you for your offer of help.

1) I am able to access qsub (and all other sge commands) from the command line.

2) When I try to setup my Apache server as described in the online instructions, I get an internal server error and the following error message in /var/log/httpd/error_log:
configuration error: couldn't perform authentication. AuthType not set!: /~webmo/cgi-bin/webmo/login.cgi

I have tried to google the error and the only (partially helpful solution that I found was to remove the "Require" statement as I suggested previously. When I do this I am able to setup WebMO on the headnode with full functionality. When I try to interface with SGE (which works fine for job submission from the commandline), I get the following error:

error: commlib error: got select error (Connection refused)
Unable to run job: unable to send message to qmaster using port 6444 on host "raven.local": got send error.
Exiting.


If you have any additional suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
