    Bad gateway message in Web OPAC

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph

    I am getting a "bad gateway" message in my Web OPAC when clicking a record for full view

    This is often caused by large log files in $alephe_root/apache/logs directory.
    Other times clear_vir must be run, utf files must be deleted, or web server must be restarted.
    Do as follows to prevent the message:
    1. delete utf files via util X
    2. stop and started the servers via util W
    3. do clear_vir via dlib vir01 and util / x / 8.
    4. Check log files under $alephe_root/apache/logs and see if the files are extra big and have error messages (such as internal error: bad expires). To so so do:
    cd $alephe_root/apache/logs
    ls -lrt *_log
    5. stop apache, delete enormous apache log files, restart apache
    6. If problem persists, do reboot
