I'm running supervisord on my CentOS 6 box like so,

/usr/bin/supervisord -c /etc/supervisord.conf

and when I launch supervisorctl all process status are fine, but if I try the reload command in supervisorctl, and then do anything, I get

unix:///tmp/supervisor.sock no such file

but the reload command should take care of recreating the .sock?

I'm using the same config file I've used successfully on other boxes, and im running everything as root. I can't undesrtand what the problem is...

Config file:

; Sample supervisor config file.

[unix_http_server]

Did you check /tmp/supervisor.sock exists immediately before using supervisorctl, and that supervisord has not already exited and removed it? –  ramruma Sep 22 '12 at 23:11
    
ramruma- that's what doesn't make sense. I'm IN supervisorctl and call 'reload', so that command should handle recreating the .sock file –  Yarin Sep 24 '12 at 15:42
    
I have the same problem. It's not doing what it's meant to do! If you just run supervisord it should boot the daemon then ctl should work. –  jmoz Nov 22 '12 at 15:16

This is a supervisord bug: https://github.com/Supervisor/supervisor/issues/121#issuecomment-11445156

I've worked around it by reverting to v3.0a10.

I had these weird issues using the version of supervisord in the CentOS yum repos. Nuked that version & went with the easy_install method. No problem since. The version in the repos is pretty old too & doesn't support a lot of the new features on their website. –  churnd May 23 '13 at 17:53

they solved the bug in the latest release (3.0b2, 2013-05-28)

Reverted a change to logging introduced in 3.0b1 that was intended to allow multiple processes to log to the same file with the rotating log handler. The implementation caused supervisord to crash during reload and to leak file handles. Also, since log rotation options are given on a per-program basis, impossible configurations could be created (conflicting rotation options for the same file). Given this and that supervisord now has syslog support, it was decided to remove this feature. A warning was added to the documentation that two processes may not log to the same file.

https://pypi.crate.io/packages/source/s/supervisor/supervisor-3.0b2.tar.gz#md5=e2557853239ee69955f993091b0eddc4

Just tested and it works!
