Hi all,

If I try to remove some sw packages smitty stops with the following error :

########################################################
Command: failed        stdout: yes           stderr: no

Before command completion, additional instructions may appear below.

installp -u -V2 -f File 2>&1

    Welcome.html.en_US
    Welcome.html.en_US.arcade

exactly the same happens if I simply run:

########################################################

# lppchk -v -m3

lppchk: A lexical error occurred for 37efd6b3e585a45ce29afc778b4e83ba

  ddd314672706970cc2d003e5248e8e85 0.0.0.0 (UNKNOWN)

########################################################

and if I list the installed filesets I see the following strange entries :

Very strangely if I try to see what the fileset contents are I see files
which were under a user home dir,
they belong to a package the user copied inside his home (they were some
jdbc stuff from Merant), but he swear that he never installed it using smit
(really unfortunately he has root access :-(

I think that the sw database is corrupted, is there a way to fix/regenerate
it? or can I try to remove the garbage?

Thanks,

Massimo

 
 
 

1. What UNIX database sw is most freq used for http servers?

Hello,

        I have seen a great deal of web sevrers that use calls to a
database for serving hmtl pages instead of actual files in
subdirectories on the server. Also some pages that contain data that
comes from a database instead of html text.

        What databases (UNIX) are most frequently used for web servers
and which is best suited for use with web service? Are off the shelf
packages like Oracle and Informix being used? Can someone briefly
explain which ones are used and how (very brief overview) they work with
a webserver. I understand CGI programs and how they make calls to an
outside program.

Thanks!

-Jeff
