Changing the Passenger Standalone Log Level

Mark Berry June 19, 2015

I’m trying to debug an issue with Passenger Standalone 4.0.53 and had a hard time figuring out how to increase the log level. It turns out you have to create a custom Nginx configuration file, then reference it when you start Passenger.

With huge thanks to this post by Daniel Viklund, I want to share some notes and code about how I am managing delayed_job on a Rails 3.2.16 app deployed on AWS Elastic Beanstalk.


WinInit.exe Stealing Port 5000

Mark Berry October 14, 2014

On a Server 2012 R2 machine, I couldn’t figure out why WiniInit.exe, which loads at Windows startup, was using port 5000, which I wanted to use for an application. My understanding, e.g. from this thread, was that WinInit was supposed to use the first dynamic port. And this machine has the standard dynamic range starting at 49152:

C:\>netsh int ipv4 show dynamicport tcp

Protocol tcp Dynamic Port Range
Start Port      : 49152
Number of Ports : 16348
