Install VBox CentOS OpenEMM 20.04 | Python 3.8.1 | MySQL-python error

Post by rmahoney » Tue May 12, 2020 5:14 am

Hello,

I have just upgraded my CentOS VBox image from OpenEMM 19 to 20.04. I have also compiled and installed python 3.8.1 into /home/openemm/opt/python3. When I execute OpenEMMInstaller.sh Python 3 is found. Unfortunately the following error is thrown:

Mandatory python mysql module is missing!

The suggested solution is to install MySQL-python. It would appear, though, that MySQL-python does not work with python3. I also receive the "No module named 'ConfigParser'" error mentioned here:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/537 ... l-4nev4id4

I have successfully installed the following:

configparser-5.0.0-py3.8
mysql_connector_python-8.0.20
PyMySQL-0.9.3

Would it be possible update the OpenEMM code to enable one to connect to MySQL from Python 3?

Best, Richard

Thank you. Once I had executed "python3 -m pip install mysqlclient" then I could start up with "./bin/OpenEMMInstaller.sh".

Unfortunately, I still can't seem to get the backend to start:

Could it be that package sqlite-devel was not installed before you compiled Python 3? If so, please install the package and compile Python 3 again.

Thank you again, once I installed sqlite-devel I was able to execute ./bin/backend.sh without throwing any error messages.

Unfortunately, though, the Backend still fails to start:

And I'm also not able to kick off the Backend mannualy:

[openemm@openemm ~]$ ./bin/backend.sh status
[openemm@openemm ~]$ ./bin/backend.sh start
[openemm@openemm ~]$ ./bin/backend.sh status
[openemm@openemm ~]$


Something I have noticed, though, is the difference between the
current Backend JAVA directory and all previous versions (though not
sure if this is relevant):

/home/openemm/release/backend/V19.10.000.120/JAVA:

Thoughts?

Could you post content of /home/openemm/var/log/ when you restart OpenEMM?

When I restart OpenEMM the following is written to the terminal:

Checking backend directories
Service sanity is marked as inactive

And nothing is written to:

/home/openemm/log/backend.log

After deleting the old /home/openemm/log/backend.log I restarted OpenEMM.

This is what the directory now looks like. All of subdirectories are also empty.

/home/openemm/log:

An update:

I have just upgraded to the latest frontend &c. After switching, or downgrading,
the OpenEMM backend version from V20.04.000.126 ---> V19.10.000.128 the
backend appears to be working again (at least for test and admin mails).

Re: Install VBox CentOS OpenEMM 20.04 | Python 3.8.1 | MySQL-python error

Greetings,

I also have to use the OpenEMM 19.10 backend in order for it function. With the 20.04 backend I can't send any Emails or do anything.
When i use "/home/openemm/bin/backend.sh status" there is no output or any error written into the logs.
I also got this error when starting OpenEMM "Service sanity is marked as inactive.".

Kind regards,
Mika Laurer

Hello Mika,

I ended up getting everything to work, but only once I had upgraded to the latest (stable?) releases:

================================

================================
Host: openemm
License: OpenEMM (ID: 0)

I did, though, recompile Python 3.8.1 in line with the recently released manual (pasting excerpts here for convenience):

12 Deployment of Python 3.8 (or later)

RedHat:

At first, install the following required packages:
# yum install wget gcc gcc-c++ bzip2-devel
# yum install gdbm-devel libgcrypt-devel libffi-devel libxml2-devel ncurses-devel
# yum install openssl-devel readline-devel sqlite-devel zlib-devel xz xz-devel

Download the compressed tarball of Python 3.8.x (or later) from the official Python website
python.org to a working directory of your choice like /root/python3.
To create and deploy your customized version of Python, execute the following commands
as user root (with Python 3.8.2 as example):

# mkdir /home/openemm/opt/Python-3.8.2
# rm -f /home/openemm/opt/python3
# ln -s Python-3.8.2 /home/openemm/opt/python3
# tar -xaf Python-3.8.2.tar.xz
# cd Python-3.8.2
# ./configure --prefix=/home/openemm/opt/Python-3.8.2
# make
# make test
# make install
# export PATH="/home/openemm/opt/python3/bin:$PATH"
# which python3

The last command should result in output

/home/openemm/opt/python3/bin/python3

Install Python's package manager PIP:

# python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip

Finally, install some Python modules required by EMM Inhouse:

# python3 -m pip install py3dns
# python3 -m pip install xlrd xlwt xlutils
# python3 -m pip install paramiko pyspf dnspython dkimpy
# python3 -m pip install pycrypto
# python3 -m pip install requests
# python3 -m pip install httpie
# python3 -m pip install setproctitle
# python3 -m pip install inotify
# python3 m pip install aiodns aiohttp aiohttp-xmlrpc aiosmtpd

Hi Richard,

thank you. That atleast gave me an error message.
Sadly the backend is still not able to start. I now get this error: "*** Error report for sanity check *** Check: <bound method OpenEMM.__crontab of <sanity3.OpenEMM object at 0x7fa24dd5acd0>> failed: ('list index out of range',)
Failed in sanity check
"
Seems like some list in that python object is corruped. But I don't know what the class exactly does.

Thank you for your help.
Mika

I had some Problem with Pyhton 3.8 and the Export path.

the command export PATH="/home/openemm/opt/python3/bin:$PATH" is not permanent.
So after a reboot the Phyton3 was not found at all.

I changed the export Path to

echo 'pathmunge /home/openemm/opt/python3/bin' > /etc/profile.d/ree.sh
chmod +x /etc/profile.d/ree.sh
# and Reload profile
. /etc/profile


Maybe this will help.
