EasyEngine Swap Error


#1

I am getting this errot when issuing ee site create example.com

Adding 1GB swapfile, please wait… Unable to on Swap, exit status = 255

@nastyraj7,

Hi, which hosting provider you are using for your VPS?

EasyEngine is using following command to on the swapfile

swapon /ee-swapfile

Check that your VPS is allowed to execute this command or not.


#3

I think EE should have a verify option for existing swap.

For example when we hit ee stack install and get’s to the swap, should ask to install or verify existing swap. I already had swap installed when I hit a clean install on my DO droplet.


#4

So this mean creating site on OpenVZ is impossible with the new update, since adding swap file is disabled on almost all OpenVZ container.


#5

Yes, if swaping is not allowed you can’t use it. You should consider DigitalOcean or other VPS hosting. Personally I’m using DO with 14.04 Ubuntu, works fine for me. I got surprised when I saw in a clean install that the install script tries to put a swapfile. That’s awesome !


#6

There must be a way to disable this… Other wise it wont be useable for low budget/OpenVZ VPS. What are my options now i have already bought a VPS from same company on which i had ee used before.


#7

We have added SWAP creation in EasyEngine, becaue Percona MySQL fails to install on low RAM servers.

A simple workaround to disbale swap creation is

vim /usr/local/sbin/ee +51

and comment the following line

            #ee_lib_swap

#8

ee site create domain.com --wpfc give following error now…

Unable to add rtCamp NGINX launchpad repository, exit status = 127


#9

Thank you! Worked like charm.

Yesterday I did a clean install of EE on DO droplets and notice percona 5.6 use a lot of Memory. A simple fix I discover is to add in /etc/mysql/my.cnf

performance_schema=0

It reduce the memory usage tremendously.

Hi.,

Try this, edit

vim /etc/easyengine/ee.conf

and change following value

gpg-key-fix = true

#11

Found another issue in my system setup (Ubuntu14 on OpenVZ ):

add-apt-repository was missing in my system

That helped me:

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

(this package will install “add-apt-repository” on ubuntu14)

on older versions “add-apt-repository” is in package:

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties

(…note the difference: -common OR -properties)


#12

@ingobaab

We are aware of this and we used both software-properties-common and python-software-properties

Refer: https://github.com/rtCamp/easyengine/blob/stable/bin/install#L103

@miteshshah You guys are great - keep up the good work!!

Btw: I would like to integrate your easyengine into my own ‘commercial hosting’, - is that allowed?
