Giving Cherokee a first spin to try it out so bare with me if that's a dumb question.
I've installed it on a CentOS 6.3 VM through EPEL repo.
If i open
http://localhost in elinks (sorry no gui) I can see the "Powered by Cherokee" page fine.
I've then launched the cherokee-admin process and open
http://localhost:9090 in elinks.
I'm being asked the login and passsword, which I enter, but then nothing happens. It gets stuck loading.
I've tried the ssh tunnel technique to load it in a fancier browser like chrome in case that was the problem but it's the same scenario, I get the popup asking me for the username and password but then the browser gets stuck loading.
On a few occasions, Chrome shows a "504 Gateway Timeout" message but not always. If I refresh when that happens then it gets stuck again.
What am I missing here?
EDIT: If i let chrome running long enough I get this error message:
503 Service Unavailable ------------------------ Cherokee web server 1.2.101 (UNIX), Port 9090
EDIT 2: I've got Python 2.6.6
This is the output when I start
cherokee-admin -x -b
Cherokee Web Server 1.2.101 (Feb 21 2012): Listening on port ALL:9090, TLS disabled, IPv6 enabled, using epoll, 4096 fds system limit, max. 2041 connections, single thread Login: User: admin One-time Password: 2nEKQfD3RqLbKJ5a Web Interface: URL: http://localhost:9090/
When I open up the admin in a browser the cherokee-admin displays this:
