404

This page is for those who host on their own Windows server and are trying to diagnose the cause of a 404.

Identify the problem:

  1. If your browser on the server is displaying the page (http://127.0.0.1) properly, it's a networking problem.
    • check port forwarding, routing, firewalls, and dns on the server, client, and every device in-between.
  2. If your browser on the server is displaying the wrong page or anything other than a timeout, it's a service conflict. (multiserver.log contains "Address already in use")
    • Use a different port or stop and disable other services using port 80
      • Windows built in
        • sc config http start= disabled
        • net stop http /y
      • Linux list what is using the port
        • netstat -lnp | grep ":80"
  3. If /logs/err.log said it can't find a class
    • use 7z to check no jar files are corrupted.
  4. If there is no multiserver.log it's a .bat or java problem.
    • run the intranet.bat one line at a time to isolate the problem
    • reinstall java and update intranet.bat to the new java.exe
  5. If there is no java.exe in the task manager it's a config problem.
    • look in the log file for errors.
    • run a copy of intranet.bat without the loop or exit to find errors not in the log.
