How do I properly shut down and restart the SFX server?
The SFX processes (Apaches and MySQL) should stop and start up again if the machine is shut down and restarted normally.
However, if you would prefer to manually restart or shut down the SFX processes instead, please take the following steps:
- log in as root
- Run the following commands:
tcsh source ~sfxglb41/.cshrc cd /exlibris/sfx_ver/sfx4_1/sfxglb41/admin/init_scripts ./sfxd restart
Note that stop and start are also valid options.
You will see the following messages:
Shutting down SFX v4 daemons: Redirecting output to /exlibris/sfx_ver/sfx4_1/tmp/sfxd.log done. Starting SFX v4 daemons: Redirecting output to /exlibris/sfx_ver/sfx4_1/tmp/sfxd.log done.
- Check the log file (/exlibris/sfx_ver/sfx4_1/tmp/sfxd.log) for any errors during this process.
Please see the "Startup Scripts" section of the SFX System Administration Guide.pdf.
