Please report any other irregularities here.
On the dev server we have configured the email sending backend to instead write to a static directory that is then accessible by apache viewing so you can see what emails *would* have been sent if it was sent to an SMTP server or something. This has stopped working in the new dev server. Failed to send about <Event: Ma Face> File "/data/python-dev/src/air-dev.allizom.org/air/airmozilla/new/eventemails.py", line 43, in send_new_event_emails sending.send_about_new_event(event) File "/data/python-dev/src/air-dev.allizom.org/air/airmozilla/new/sending.py", line 56, in send_about_new_event email.send() File "/data/python-dev/src/air-dev.allizom.org/venv/lib/python2.6/site-packages/django/core/mail/message.py", line 276, in send return self.get_connection(fail_silently).send_messages([self]) File "/data/python-dev/src/air-dev.allizom.org/venv/lib/python2.6/site-packages/django/core/mail/message.py", line 237, in get_connection self.connection = get_connection(fail_silently=fail_silently) File "/data/python-dev/src/air-dev.allizom.org/venv/lib/python2.6/site-packages/django/core/mail/__init__.py", line 30, in get_connection return klass(fail_silently=fail_silently, **kwds) File "/data/python-dev/src/air-dev.allizom.org/venv/lib/python2.6/site-packages/django/core/mail/backends/filebased.py", line 30, in __init__ raise ImproperlyConfigured('Could not create directory for saving email messages: %s (%s)' % (self.file_path, err)) ImproperlyConfigured: Could not create directory for saving email messages: /data/www/air-dev.allizom.org/air/media/emails ([Errno 13] Permission denied: '/data/www')
Is the email supposed to be generated by code running on the Air Mozilla web heads? Or some other component (like a job invoked by manage.py / django-admin)? I ask because the presence of "/data/python-dev/src/air-dev.allizom.org" in the traceback implies that this is being run on the admin node. On that node, there is no /data/www/ directory, which is why writing a message to /data/www/air-dev.allizom.org/air/media/emails would fail. That directory definitely does on the -dev web head and Apache can write to it.   [email@example.com ~]$ ls -lad /data/www/air-dev.allizom.org/air/media/emails drwxrwxrwx 2 apache apache 20480 Aug 7 21:47 /data/www/air-dev.allizom.org/air/media/emails
Before we only sent emails from the webheads. I.e. as part of a request/response cycle. These emails do get sent from a cron job. Would it be possible to change things so that they both write to the same destination? Do they have any shared filesystem?
The file system that's mounted as /data/www/air-dev.allizom.org/air/media on the webheads is *already* mounted on the admin node under a different file path. As an experiment, I've changed the EMAIL_FILE_PATH in the local settings file to reflect the underlying file mount, which is present on both the admin node and the web-heads. Can you please test and let me know if it works?
Emails from the admin node works https://air-dev.allizom.org/media/emails/20150811-213018-75028688.log And it works from the webheads too https://air-dev.allizom.org/media/emails/20150811-213605-140507209849616.log YAY! Thanks for being awesome!
