The following paragraphs provide important information about running the AnswerBook2 server from the CD.
The AnswerBook2 server run from the CD always runs on port 8888. If you already have an AnswerBook2 server running on your system using the default port (8888), the ab2cd script will display the following message:
A document server is already running on this system as server:8888.
# /usr/lib/ab2/bin/ab2admin -o stop
Always use ab2cd stop to stop the server running from the CD. Do not use /etc/init.d/ab2mgr stop to stop the CD-based server.
The ab2cd stop command stops the AnswerBook2 server process and cleans up all files in the /tmp/.ab2/ and /tmp/ab2cd_config/ directories. The /etc/init.d/ab2mgr stop command stops all server processes, but does not clean up the files in the /tmp/.ab2/ and /tmp/ab2cd_config/ directories.
To run two AnswerBook2 servers (one on your system, one from the CD), keep these rules in mind:
The /etc/init.d/ab2mgr start command always starts the server on your system.
The ab2cd command always starts the server from the CD.
Always use the ab2cd stop command to stop the server running from the CD.
To stop both servers, first use the ab2cd stop command to stop the server running from the CD, then use either /etc/init.d/ab2mgr stop or /usr/lib/ab2/bin/ab2admin -o stop to stop the server running on your system.
