Good Day,

I am running Able FTP 8.28 on a windows 2003 server 64 bit. It is running as service with 64 jre folder in place.

It has been running fine for 3 days. Max log size was set to 50000000 and trimmed size is 50%. All logs are combined.

The process was running along and then last night just stopped running. There is nothing in server events, the ableftp8 service was still running, here is excerpt from last entry in log file and first entry when I tried to bring up the gui this morning:

Nov 4, 2009 11:38:26 PM Chain - Optio_PL_Chain - End Instance = 3458 , Exit Code = 0 , Runtime (ms) = 16968
Nov 4, 2009 11:38:39 PM Chain - Optio_PL_Chain - Schedule Title = Optio_PL_Chain , Scheduled execution time = Nov 4, 2009 11:38:39 PM
05-Nov-2009 06:46:46 System default LANGUAGE = English
05-Nov-2009 06:53:11 System default LANGUAGE = English

I tried to start the gui twice.

I then stopped and restarted the service.

Nov 5, 2009 6:54:55 AM Engine server socket closed on 1973. This error message is normal for Engine shut down or for Maintenance task
Nov 5, 2009 6:54:57 AM Shutdown request received. Engine server port has been closed. Depending on settings, Engine may wait for running tasks to complete before shutdown. Instance = 5

and got the same thing when trying to start the gui
05-Nov-2009 06:55:01 System default LANGUAGE = English
05-Nov-2009 06:55:08 System default LANGUAGE = English

Checked events and even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the service and got no gui coming up.

I then checked in the debug log in the ableftp8 install root folder and got this.

Nov 05, 2009, 07:20:37 AM
could not open log file for writing

I cleared the logs manually and all started again.

Have you seen this before? Is there a maximum size to set the logs?
During this time the debugLog.jsd stayed empty.
Is there a recommended time to archive off the logs?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

50 MB is very big log. Recommended is 2-5 MB.
You can archive the logs nightly or every 2 days.. get a feel for how long it takes to fill a 5 MB log. it all depends on your task type and schedule fre
