Hello,

Not sure what would be needed to help but can provide it all if needed. Basically, what happened I was running out of space on the server and in an attempt to make it functional again (I couldnt preform any action on the server directly via the web gui) I deleted the /var/logs folder and since then after a restart no web gui. Not sure what is the issue or what else to look in to as far as the cause of it. I can SSH in as root and have full command line access so it seems to be running fine just the web gui seems to be broken.

Hi,

can you please provide the output of pveversion -v and systemctl status pveproxy pvedaemon? (In code tags would be best.)
Also, please attach the output of journalctl -b as a file.

This should help to troubleshoot this problem further.
 
Hello,

Thanks for the help. Below are the code block and the attached files. Had to do two of the commands as files because of the number of lines in each. Its only the most recent 2000 lines or so in the file as thats all I could copy out of it via SSH.

Hi,

pretty much what I initially suspected.
Run
Code:
mkdir /var/log/pveproxy
as root in a shell, that should fix it hopefully.
 
Perfect after doing that and Chmod ing the folder to give it write permissions I was able to get back to the web gui. Is there anything I can do to prevent the logs from filling up the harddrive to that extent again?

Great to hear that everything works now again.

Proper monitoring of disk space, in this case. I.e. basic system administration stuff.
