Hello, how are you?. See, I had my asterisk running over Centos 5, and this was working fine until yesterday. It happens that I realized this last Tuesday I had my /var/ over 95%, and did not remember where was my route to clean.
I just decided to clean this amount of old backups yesterday Thursday and showed 100% (like 35GB), now is about 7%, and when trying to log into my FREE PBX by GUI, there was this message “FATAL ERROR DB Error: connect failed”; I have learned that this might happen because of the /var/ folder was full and the MYSQLD service was not running, and indeed was not. I have managed to run the service and checked by “service mysqld status” showed OK, then realized that apache was turned down because the HTTPD service was not running, I have also managed to run by checking status and showed OK. Then went again to try log into my FREE PBX, and still the same message “FATAL ERROR DB Error: connect failed”, I must say I was not trying to change any passwords, as I have seen in many forums users trying to do this and the message popped to them. Did not try any updates as well.
What can I do?, I thought it might be fixed by having these two services running up.
Hello. I just rebooted my asterisk server and did not fix issue. How do I reboot my FREE PBX?, by CLI?, and how do I do this then?, since I am not able to lo into my FREE PBX via web GUI. I don’t want to upgrade since seem to be working fine until now.
Of course I have rebooted the machine, and also, the services mysqld and httpd were not running, and I had to fix them and now they are properly running, besides I’ve restarted service asterisk as well.
