ntopng does not start



  • Apologies if this is in the wrong place. I am stuck between this board and the package board, however, as the issue seems to be related to the dev builds of pfsense I decided on here.

    For some reason, the ntopng service fails to start on the development versions of pfsense.
    Current pfsense version:
    2.4.5-DEVELOPMENT (amd64)
    built on Tue Sep 18 20:30:37 EDT 2018
    FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE-p3

    But the issue has been present for several months worth of dev builds. I haven't really had time to ask about it.
    I can't seem to find any logs which would explain why the service does not start. Can anyone suggest where to look or what the problem is here?



  • Well, jeez do I feel stupid.
    Removed and Installed as opposed to using the reinstall option seems to have fixed it.



  • Further to this. Updated to the next snapshot

    2.4.5-DEVELOPMENT (amd64)
    built on Wed Sep 19 12:33:40 EDT 2018
    FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE-p3

    It broke again until I completely removed and reinstalled the package. So it seems that the process of updating pfsense breaks something.
