"could not lookup DNS configuration info service: (ipc/send) invalid destination port"

Gaelan asked:

Error message in title appears in apache log file. There are maybe 10 or 15 instances of it. Drupal site running on server is unable to send HTTP requests. Any ideas about what might be going wrong here?


I answered:

This happens on OS X when you start a program from a logged in user account which was expected to start as a service, and then log out while the service is still running. From a Google search, you can find that this may affect virtually any application that normally runs as a service.

In order to resolve this problem, you need to start BitNami MAPPstack automatically at boot time, rather than from manager-osx or your terminal when you log in.
