I'm seeing an issue with logging into the web UI of ipa. I've been using
IPA for 6 months or so in production, and all has been well so far.
The last thing i did in terms of IPA was run ipa-dns-install, which
completed successfully, but i suspect this issue occured before that i
never noticed as it's been a few weeks since i used the UI. I typically
check the login page works and ldapsearch works after upgrades, but in this
instance the login box is presented, and after entering the credentials it
sits doing nothing for a while, then times out with 'internal server error'
The only useful log i've managed to find is in /var/log/httpd/error_log
[Wed Nov 27 08:41:47 2013] [error] [client (redacted)] Script timed out
before returning headers: wsgi.py, referer: https://(redacted)/ipa/ui/
I'm seeing this behaviour on both my master and replica, but they are both
identical in terms of package versions and such, so it may not be
My system versions:
Centos 6.4 x64
which are (afaik) all latest for centos 6.4
Oddly, i'm not seeing this behaviour in my virtualbox / vagrant IPA
testbed, which has identical version numbers, and wsgi.py in /usr/share/ipa
has identical md5sum.
Not really sure how to approach debugging this further. Any ideas ? Has
anyone else seen this happen ?
The ldapsearch, bind dns and everything else seem operational - just the
GUI is out of action.
