If you have OpenProject set to auto-update, you may come in in the morning to a 503 error. For some reason the upgrade scripts don’t post-run the
'openproject configure‘ command necessary to complete the upgrade.
Here’s a short monit script that will notice the downtime and do the configure for you:
check host localhost-openproject with address 127.0.0.1 start program = "/bin/systemctl start openproject" stop program = "/bin/systemctl stop openproject" if failed port 443 protocol https status != 503 with http headers [Host: "project.example.com" ] for 10 cycles then exec "/usr/bin/openproject configure" if 3 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout
configure command then sets up the server as running, so you shouldn’t have to do anything else. The net effect is a few minutes of downtime on a version upgrade, which for us is acceptable at 6am.
Adapt the script for your specific needs.
