I have a MapServer version 7* installed on Linux, to serve maps to a website. It worked well until recently, but now it's not serving maps anymore and can't figure out why.
When I check
ps aux, the
mapserv service seeems to be running, the webpage requests are valid and are sent out as they should, and the data that mapserver uses - the maps - have stayed the same.
I wanted to login to MapServer but now, there is another problem - MapServer apparently has a password, which I did not get when I took over the project. Password is lost, but is needed to restart the service afaik. Is there any way to recover the password? How do I fix the issue with MapServer not serving maps?
*It's an old project I took over, legacy code, that's why we kept the 7.4.4 version, or else everything would have to be changed.
