[Mono-list] mod_mono /tmp/mod_mono_server

Hi all,
 It appears I'm having a similar problem to what Giuseppe Greco was having in 
this thread:


mod_mono starts up the mod_mono_server.exe automatically the first time a mono 
enabled page is viewed, however it fails to create the /tmp/mod_mono_server 
named pipe.

in the error log it simply reports:

[Tue Feb 15 13:08:15 2005] [error] Failed connecting. No such file or 

and the webpage errors with:
503 - service temporarily unavailable

if I "su apache" and then start mod_mono_server.exe manually (with the exact 
same command line as mod_mono starts it with) it then creates 
the /tmp/mod_mono_server and everything works fine...

The command line I'm using to start the server manually (copied from a 
"ps axww" that mod_mono started automatically) is:

/usr/local/bin/mono /usr/local/lib/mono/1.0/mod-mono-server.exe 
--filename /tmp/mod_mono_server --applications /:/home/james/monotest 
--nonstop --appconfigdir /usr/local/apache2/conf/mod-mono-applications

I just shouldn't have to start the mono server automatically each time in 
order for it to create the /tmp/mod_mono_server named pipe!

Any help would be appreciated...
