Web stack incident — Example of a Postmortem

  • 9:20 AM: Docker container initialized
  • 9:25 AM: Unsuccessful curl attempt done
  • 9:27 AM: Several tests done to check connections to different ports
  • 9:39 AM: Apache service started. The command to start Apache was inserted on the terminal
  • 9:40 AM: Curl attend done successfully and page containing “Hello Holberton” was returned
  • Every time that you are working with a web server (Apache2 in this case), the first thing that you should do is check its status and make sure that it is running properly. In case it is not running, you can start or restart the service.
  • If you are new working with web servers, it is recommended to first read the manual to make sure that you are familiar with the basic commands. This could be helpful in case you are facing a problem because you can make a basic troubleshooting to avoid dealing with complex procedures that probably are not necessary.
