PFSense 2.2.6 web interface becomes unresponsive



  • Hi,

    We experiencing an issue in PFSense 2.2.6. It's a high available setup (2 nodes) and the webinterface of the slave becomes unresponsive a few times a month.

    The solution is to login the SSH of the slave node and use options 11 (Restart webConfigurator) and 16 (Restart PHP-FPM). The webinterfaces (and the XMLRPC) becomes reachable again.

    I can't find anything useful in the logs (on both nodes). I guess it's caused by the XMLRPC as that's the only 'user' that's active on the webinterface of the slave during the time it gets unresponsive.

    Is this a known issue? Any suggestion in how to fix it?

    Thanks,
    Sander



  • I had also such an issue, the lighttpd on backup box crashed when Suricata ran an XMLRPC Sync.
    CMB suggested me to update the lighttpd package. After the update the issue was gone.

    Thanks for your reply. I will give it a try, it makes sense to me that this may solve the issue.
