Ok, so in an effort to keep things running smoothly, this weekend our company restarted the Linux server our Internet site was running on. Come Monday morning, we can't get to the site. I can ping the computer, but I don't know how much that is worth. It's a Linux Red Hat Enterprise 5 box running Apache and Tomcat with a Java website. Unfortunately, the person who previously managed the site no longer works for the company and is not within reach at the moment. And before he left, he didn't have time to update any of us developers or IT people that were left. We believe there may be a startup script to start the services, but we're not fully sure. I'm not expecting someone to tell me exactly how to fix this, but if you could help with some of these questions, I'd appreciate it.
- How do I verify Apache and Tomact are running on the server?
- Where on Linux would be the directory that a script could be placed to run on startup?
- I see Tomcat in the usr/local and tried running startup.sh/startup.bat from the bin directory but nothing happened. Should I try running that from the command line or is the GUI fine.
- What order is it best to start the services?
Thank you all for your help. The guy finally called us back. Much appreciated.
