upgrade to the latest OBS on my local server breaks

I upgraded from the old openSUSE Build Service on my local server to the latest one on


and it seems it broke my installation because all my setting are correct and I did everything on the README.upgrades. And yet my API refuses and I get 500 - Internal Server Error…
So what am I doing wrong? I even checked lighttpd.


Hmm… looks like obsrepserver and obssrcserver isn’t starting: it’s giving me error code -20. help anyone?

Please use the project openSUSE:Tools:Unstable to update, as this is the place where the upcoming release 1.7 is prepared.

Well, yeah, I did use openSUSE:Tools:Unstable (was typo on first post).
seems that obssrcserver and obsrepserver give error code -20 when starting. :expressionless:

The errorcode -20 comes from a failing call to slptool, this should not be fatal.

Did you check the files README.UPDATERS and README.SETUP in /usr/share/doc/packages/obs-api/?

Please have a look in the api log (/srv/www/obs/api/log) maybe you can find the error there.

Hmm… I have done everything in README.UPDATERS and README.SETUP (in fact, I set up my obs server from there). So then I checked the log and it seems to be fastcgi… Really, I don’t know what’s going on. Will someone please try this themselves on an openSUSE 11.2 x86_64 and see what they get?

EDIT: My god, I went onto IRC to try to find help, and i get no response for 3 hours!!! I’m taking this to the mailing list, hopefully it’ll work out. I don’t think i’ll close this thread yet though in case the mailing lists fail.

I had same issue.
I strace the dispatch.fcgi and saw them trying to connect to port 81.
Searching led me to webui/config/environments/production.rb

I copied production_slave.rb to production.rb, and restart lighttpd and I got the web interface back.
