Chapter 17. Testing connections to Evergreen

Once you have installed and started Evergreen, test your connection to Evergreen via srfsh. As the opensrf Linux account, issue the following commands to start srfsh and try to log onto the Evergreen server using the egadmin Evergreen administrator user name and password that you set using the eg_db_config command:

/openils/bin/srfsh
srfsh% login <admin-user> <admin-pass>

You should see a result like:

   }

If this does not work, it’s time to do some troubleshooting.
