I have problem with the worker in the current development branch.

First let me say I only have this problem on one of my two Friendica servers, the one with Apache, but that might not be related. The other one runs on Nginx.
I now know, that I have to either reboot or restart mariadb, restarting the deamon does not help (ie. stopping and starting it again), restarting php-fpm or httpd does also not help. At least not restarting these alone.
So what I do is:
systemctl restart httpd.service php-fpm.service mariadb.service friendicadaemon.service

I confirmed that the daemon was running before by daemon.php status, also when I stopped it the returned info was Worker daemon process 471544 was killed..

As soon as I ran systemctl restart httpd.service php-fpm.service mariadb.service friendicadaemon.service I can see many worker processes, before there were none.

Any of the developers interested to get information to trouble shoot this? Let me know what to do the next time this happens or how to exclude a server problem first.

Friendica Support reshared this.

Maybe @Michael Vogel can tell me how to find out if this is a config error and which information to supply when it is not?
