I am experiencing an issue with RStudio Connect documents that rely on python. There appears to be inconsistencies with the Python Environment Restore functionality. In the logs of my documents that are failing it is trying to run one python executable some of the time and a different python executable other times.
Here are some logs and configurations. When the document fails I see this:
08/28 11:29:57.889 Running with python “3.6.8 (default, Jan 14 2019, 11:02:34) [GCC 8.0.1 20180414 (experimental) [trunk revision 259383]]” at /usr/bin/python3.6 08/28 11:29:57.889 Running as user: rstudio-connect 08/28 11:29:57.889 The python installation at /usr/bin/python3.6 was expected to have version 3.6.7 but is reporting version 3.6.8; the Python installation may have changed. RStudio Connect needs to be restarted. Please contact the server administrator.
When the document is successful I see this:
08/28 07:35:07.755 Running with python “3.6.8 (default, Aug 26 2019, 16:56:45) [GCC 7.4.0]” at /opt/Python/3.6.8/bin/python3.6 08/28 07:35:07.756 Running as user: rstudio-connect 08/28 07:35:07.770 Using cached environment: 0WGGkSRuxhQTsrhgja3AgQ 08/28 07:35:10.719 Packages in the environment: pycrypto==2.6.1,
Here is my python config:
[Python] Enabled = true ;Executable = /opt/Python/3.7.1/bin/python3 ;Executable = /usr/bin/python3 Executable = /opt/Python/3.6.8/bin/python3
I recently rebuilt python 3.6.8 from source as suggested in the admin guide and pointed to it rather than the python in the
/usr/bin path. I think a few days ago the server that is running our rstudio connect must have switched python versions from 3.6.7 to 3.6.8. RStudio Connect must be holding onto some 3.6.7 config in cache or something? I ran the migrate rebuild packrat/clear cache last night (
sudo /opt/rstudio-connect/bin/migrate rebuild-packrat --force). Still seeing the same issue today. Has anyone run across this behavior and know a fix?
Additionally, when the document fails for a python environment restore issue it DOES NOT send an email notifying the owner that the document failed to render.
