[GeoNode-users] Problem with GeoServer

Hi Ana

This probably means Geoserver has died and you need to restart it with 'sudo service tomcat7 restart'.

As to the cause, you should check the geoserver logs for ERRORs that occured shortly before or at the time of death. On our system these logs are in /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/geoserver/data/logs.

I've found (on Geonode 2.4) that uploading a shapefile with errors can kill Geoserver. E.g. a shapefile with attribute names that do not start with a letter or contain characters other than letters, digits and underscore. Sad but true.

Good luck!

Subject: [GeoNode-users] Problem with GeoServer

Dear Sir,

We have recently installed GeoNode on Ubuntu 16.04 Server (installation was standard deployment, not development mode). Everything is working fine except one problem: from time to time we can't see layers (only pink tiles - image1 in attachment), and when that happends we can't access to GeoServer admin page through web browser (error 404 - image2 in attachment).
We have no idea why is this happening. Any hint or help would be helpful.

Thanks in advance,

Ana Boljević
