Unable to restart wfa on Linux

sudo ./wfa.pl --restart
Password:
Stopping wfa-server: [ OK ]
wfa-db server PID file could not be found! [FAILED]

I recently installed the linux version and it was working fine until I attempted to restart.

Now the db isn't coming up as a result of which I am unable to login.

 

Can you please help resolve this.

 

Thanks,

Check in /var/log/wfa and see what the logs are reporting when you try and start the service.

Could you share contents of the file /var/log/mysqld.log and could you please verify if there is no mysql process on the system, after you have tried restart.

I wasn't aware that WFA requires a userid - wfa to be on the system.

We have a internal process that takes care of account mgmt that erases any non-standard accounts.

I'll figure out how to get wfa on it. But meanwhile, this resolved the issue for me.
