Thin PID file is deleting but port is listening

Reported by icewalker | July 23rd, 2009 @ 07:12 AM | in Future


I am using thin for my rails application. Thin pid file is deleting but not port. I am using Thin version 1.2.2 and OS : RH 4.0 EL.

Any idea why Thin pid file is deleting and how to resolve the issue.

    Mine have the same problem.

    When stopping, it shows a message "Can't stop process, no PID found in tmp/pids/thin.3303.pid"

    Thin 1.2.2
    Debian 5
    Linux 2.6.26 amd64
    ruby 1.9.1p129

    It happened in older versions, in both cluster and non-cluster.

    • Tag set to pid file fork

    This bug might be associated with fork

    For example

    class DummiesController < ActionController::Base
      def index
        pid = fork do
        Process.detach pid

    It will remove the pid file once the index method is called.
