503 - Service Not Available

  • Hello,

    I'm want to test wifi with snapshot release: pfSense-LiveCD-2.2-DEVELOPMENT-amd64-20140605-1701

    But if I want to access the web interface to config some stuff is get: 503 - Service Not Available.

    My WAN en LAN interfaces are up and running. pfSense is running more of less because I can use the internet form my LAN.

    How can I help to debug is issue? My final go is to test as much as possible with the wifi capabilities

  • Same here. Was working fine and suddely, this problem. Updated to last update via console without succes. I will try a factory reset.

  • In system log:
    testpfs22 check_reload_status: Could not connect to /var/run/php-fpm.socket

    Can't make a cat or tail on lighttpd log. The output is really long and the output is garbage.

  • A little more,

    If I try to start php-fpm, I get this error.

    [01-Oct-2014 11:53:20] ERROR: failed to open configuration file '/usr/local/etc/php-fpm.conf': No such file or directory (2)         
    [01-Oct-2014 11:53:20] ERROR: failed to load configuration file '/usr/local/etc/php-fpm.conf'                                         
    [01-Oct-2014 11:53:20] ERROR: FPM initialization failed

  • Ok, found the config file at /usr/local/lib/php-fpm.conf but the're a error about wheel group not found.

    Should I add wheel or use a other group for php-fpm ? Is it normal that wheel is missing ? I see in a PFSense 2.1 that wheel and a lot of other group are there will on my 2.2 test, there a really short list of group:

  • Finaly edited php-fpm.conf to change user to www and group to daemon. Web interface seem to work fine now.

  • New update available. I upgrade it and now, the php-fpm.conf file seem to be generated automaticly. Not sure if it was the same before update but I think I rebooted it without problem before last update. The file always come back with root user (that can't be use with php-fpm from the error message I get) and wheel group don't exist.

    Not sure how to fix it now since it seem to be generated automaticly by PFSense.

    Also, it's a install on a hard drive installed from iso, not a read-only embedded install.

  • Just seen this issue happen on my 2.2 rc 1/16/15 64 bit system..  Figures something always breaks

  • well i had a similar issue where web gui would say service unavailable on the below thread

  • Since SSH goes down after reboot from first upgrade when it works.. I can not get in ssh just use the local monitor and keyboard to the machine.  Also noted that system failed to give me IP.  I tried using the upgrade from console hoping this would fix it but didn't work.  Did upgrade or reinstall install same version I think but still didn't fix it. 2.1 was so much more stable than this version
