After upgrading to CentOS 7.6 and rebooting, seafdav no longer spawns, and there are no errors being recorded in any logs that I can see, and nothing being written to seafdav.log. The only thing I am seeing that is abnormal is the controller.log no longer records the line:
I got this fixed. For anyone else that runs into this, I had a “seafdav.pid” file left behind in the “pids” directory. Apparently the controller file / startup script does not handle this gracefully and decides quietly failing with no error messages or warnings at all is the correct course of action
Deleting this file allowed for the webdav process to start properly.
