School tool initial configuration error



If you are using multiple schooltool web servers on a single server then usually this configuration error occurs.

You just need to edit configuration files manually as shown below to solve the issue, you can choose whatever text editor you want,

First of all copy the original or standard instance of schooltool  “ $ sudo cp -r /etc/schooltool/standard /etc/schooltool/another “

Now edit the configuration file

“   $ sudo vim /etc/schooltool/another/schooltool.conf

site-definition /etc/schooltool/another/site.zcml


  path /var/lib/schooltool/another-Data.fs


error-log-file /var/log/schooltool/another-error.log

web-access-log-file /var/log/schooltool/another-web-access.log   “

Now edit your initial script

“  $ sudo cp /etc/init.d/schooltool /etc/init.d/schooltool-another

$ sudo vim /etc/init.d/schooltool-another

SERVER_DESC="Another SchoolTool"



LOGFILE=/var/log/schooltool/another-paste.log   “

Now start the new server.

Hope this helps!!

Hello Seven,

You will need to check several things on your computer that are most likely the causes of the error you are getting right now:

  • Check your system specifications and verify that the school tool you are attempting matches the system specs of the operating system that you are currently using. If it does not then you will need to get a setup that meets your system requirements.
  • Shut down all the programs running on your computer, and then restart the computer. After that try reinstalling the application and see if it will work this time round. It could be a temporary problem that could disappear when you restart the computer.

Hope this helps.
