Ugh, this is the worst and I'm SO frustrated!! I have #Friendica set up, I can use the app and create posts and all that, but the `bin/worker.php` file doesn't do anything! There's a bunch of stuff in my queue that isn't being processed! I have a cron job set up, I've tried running it from the command line, and nothing happens! I even added an echo at the end to make sure it reached the end and yes, it reaches the end of the file instantly.
Not even running the `bin/daemon.php` script is doing anything! The process is running, but nothing appears to be happening, and the queue remains. What the fuck!
I can't find anything helpful on a web search, so I guess my only option is to uninstall everything to try again from scratch and just hope it works next time??
omg I got it working!! I found the log setting and was able to turn on debug, and combining that with reading the code, I was able to determine that I simply hadn't allowed a tolerant enough "Maximum load average"!
Apparently, this checks the average number of processes over the past 1 and 5 minutes, and if it's above the set threshold, then it won't run. Since I'm on a shared web host, of course this won't be lower than the number of users they put on a server, which is apparently more than 20.
Setting this to a number higher than that has allowed the worker to run, and it's actually working now!! 🥲
@Alamantus I had a similar issue with a PHP app a long time ago. The web environment was fine, but the system environment wasn't correct. I think the problem was that my php.ini for the php command was missing or incorrect. Hope that helps somewhat
@50htz Yeah, I may need to contact customer support to see if any logs at all are generating somewhere I don't have access to or something... They might need to help with php.ini too, because I don't think I have access to that either.
@probgoblin Sadly no. I would love to run Pleroma, but I only have access to PHP, Node 14, Python 3.9.12, and some version of Ruby, which has so far prevented me from doing what I want...
