I'm trying to run Circus, http://circus.readthedocs.org/en/latest/installation/

I've installed it using pip, then created a circus.ini file;

[circus] check_delay = 5 endpoint = tcp://127.0.0.1:5555

and then run circusd circus.ini. But when I'm trying to run circusctl list, I'm getting following message,

Timed out.

A time out usually happens in one of those cases:

#1 The Circus daemon could not be reached.

#2 The Circus daemon took too long to perform the operation

For #1, make sure you are hitting the right place by checking your --endpoint option.

For #2, if you are not expecting a result to come back, increase your timeout option value (particularly with waiting switches)

This is my first time running Circus, what did I miss? Thanks.

Hello,

Can you try to change the port in your circus.ini file to the port that has been assigned when you created the application in your WebFaction hosting control panel?

If this does not help, please post a support ticket.

I killed the process, and re-run Circus with daemon flag circusd --daemon circus.ini. The error goes away now.

But still have no idea, where should I use the assigned port. The only post I found on Google about running Circus in Webfaction is, http://martinbrochhaus.com/circus.html.

I believe that it should be on the following line:

endpoint = tcp://127.0.0.1:5555

Just change 5555 with the assigned port. This port will be reserved for your user, which will take care of any conflicts if another application is listening on port 5555.
