I have noticed Rstudio server won't start. It was working this morning; now it does not.
I am typically the only user using the software.
To solve the problem I tried to restart, stop, start
bensmith@MSMServer:/expdata/bensmith$ sudo rstudio-server restart bensmith@MSMServer:/expdata/bensmith$ sudo rstudio-server stop bensmith@MSMServer:/expdata/bensmith$ sudo rstudio-server start
None of the commands produce any output. When I try to connect to the browser using serverdomain.com:8787 the browser hangs for about a minute, and then I get a timeout error in the Chrome browser.
# This site can’t be reached **serverdomain.com** took too long to respond.
If I run
bensmith@MSMServer:/expdata/bensmith$ sudo rstudio-server stop
then try to connect in the browser, I get the same error, but it returns immediately (<2 s) rather than actually timing out. For that reason (and because I haven't changed anything related), I don't think this is a www or proxy server misconfiguration.
I tried to clear .Rdata, .Rprofile, .Rhistory from the last used project folder, and also renamed /home/userfolder/.rstudio to /home/userfolder/.rstudio-backup, but this made no difference.
At the R console, sessionInfo() returns

Any ideas what I should do next to get it working?
