I am running seafile server 4.3 on a raspberry pi using nginx. I know, the server version is old now, but you know, never touch a running system… And to be honest, I am not really good at linux etc. and it took me quite a while to get the server running in the first place.
So, today I could not connect anymore, neither from the windows client, nor from a mobile client. The windows error message was “Sorry, but the requested page is unavailable due to a server hiccup. Our engineers have been notified, so check back later.”
Checking the seafile.log was difficult, as the raspberry pi took about half an hour to scroll to the latest entries. The log has increased over the course of the two years I have been running the server to about 250 MB, and the raspberry editor can hardly cope with that.
Anyway, the latest entries are from July 3 to July 5, stating: “http-server.c(1354): Failed to write block 9b1979a4…”.
I don’t quite understand why there has been no error message dating from today.
I’ve just checked the remaining disk space on the SD card. Everything is OK.
So - any ideas how I could continue with my troubleshooting bearing in mind my limited understanding of Linux and the internal workings of the Seafile server?
