Moved var new partition - no web services?

Hi, noticed the other day space on / was getting low, seems i forgot to create lvm partition for /var

I use hetzner so booted into rescue system, backed up via rsync /var to backup partition, deleted old /var created new var dir, created new partition for var and restored var from backup partition, edited fstab and rebooted.

All files are in new /var

ls -la /var/

I did apt-get update, apt-get update and nginx needed updating, but this had error messages:

Do i need to reinstall hestiacp?


ok, access hestiacp via IP address, services currently showing as not started are


they won’t restart?


this seems to be the issue

nginx: [emerg] bind() to failed (99: Cannot assign requested address)

have tried clearing nginx cache, but no joy?

Removed that IP, but error just goes to next IP

nginx -t
nginx: [emerg] bind() to failed (99: Cannot assign requested address)


Do this ips still exists? Never tried to resize lvm with Hetzner …

yes they exist.

Did not resize, just created new lvm with spare space.

also getting

ERROR: /usr/local/hestia/web/rrd/web/nginx.rrd: Function update_pdp_prep, case DST_GAUGE - Cannot convert ‘’ to float

Ok solved, well at least got it working.

For some reason removing additional IPs and re-adding them got things working?
