Chef 11 server on ubuntu 12.04 pedant fails


#1

I’m looking for pointers on how to debug my problem with chef server 11 on
ubuntu 12.04.

I’ve tried the following versions:

11.0.4
11.0.6
11.0.8
11.0.10

and in every case:

The package installs successfully.
The command “chef-server-ctl reconfigure” completes successfully
The command “chef-server-ctl test” fails with the following output:

Can you describe the specs of the system you are running these tests on?

The command “chef-server-ctl test” fails with the following output:

Exception during Pedant credentials setup
#<Errno::ECONNRESET: Connection reset by peer - SSL_connect>

It would be useful to look through the logs in /var/log/chef-server

Seth -

The system is a 64 bit virtual environment (openvz container) with 1 GB
RAM, 4 CPUs and about 15 G free disk space.

root@hiro:/var/log/chef-server# uname -a
Linux hiro.mainphrame.net 2.6.32-042stab084.25 #1 SMP Wed Feb 12 16:04:42
MSK 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Looking at the logs, I see… aha!

(face palm) nginx isn’t able to bind to port 80 because the VE had apache
installed and running by default.

OK, stopped and removed apache, did a “chef-server-ctl restart” and now
chef-server-ctl test" produces a good looking output:

Thanks for the hints.
