expedition first time use - Remediation help needed

In a new installation of Expedition upon first login we had three issues to remediate:


1. The instructions for "Verify that the SQL_Log_bin flag in MariaDB is set to off" were clear enough.  So that was addressed successfully.


2. Insufficient instructions for "Verify that the Log_bin flag in MariaDB is set to off". 

A search did not come up with instances of log_bin:


root:/etc/mysql# grep -i log_bin `find /etc/mysql -type f`
/etc/mysql/my.cnf:skip-log_bin = /var/log/mysql/mariadb-bin
/etc/mysql/my.cnf:skip-log_bin_index = /var/log/mysql/mariadb-bin.index


3. Insufficient instructions for "Verify the PanOrders agent is running to accept background jobs"

A look at services located panReadOrders, but no PanOrders


root:/etc/mysql# service --status-all | grep -i pan
[ - ] panReadOrders
root:/etc/mysql# service panReadOrders status

A bit more checking revealed a script:


root:/tmp# find / -print > filelist
root:/tmp# grep -i panorder filelist


No change in symptoms after


root@asa2pan:/tmp# service panReadOrders restart



root@asa2pan:/tmp# service panReadOrders stop
root@asa2pan:/tmp# service panReadOrders start


Suggestions on how to overcome these are welcome.  Thanks.

After reading the discussion a bit more, found a reference to a button in the user interface.  Located the "RESTART" button  in the Dashboard for PanReadOrders and that issue is now resolved.


There is still that MariaDB log_bin issue.

Restarting the mysql and apache2 services in that order seems to have resolved the "log_bin" issue.


Apologies for the wasted bandwidth.

That worked for me too:


sudo service mysql restart

sudo service apache2 restart
