Subject Changing rpc_port in cassandra.yaml has no effect
Date Tue, 25 Dec 2012 21:56:24 GMT
I have been using cqlsh (and --cql3) successfully for a few weeks.
But yesterday it stopped working, with the all too familiar,

     "Connection error: Could not connect to localhost:9160"

Still got the same message, 9160, after I changed the rpc_port in the yaml
file to 9161 or 9159.

I recently installed the Maven plugin in Eclipse, so I thought that might
be the problem. (My prototyping/research code is so simple that I've used
Eclipse's builds with no problems for years.  Maven would be overkill.)

I reread the various Cassandra docs, reinstalled Cassandra
(apache-cassandra-1.1.7) recreated the var/lib directories, rebooted my
machine, restarted Eclipse, that's about all I could think of.  Eclipse was
going to be the next stage for me after various cqlsh experiments, so it
shouldn't have any effect on the CLI.    I'm no expert on ports and the
like. I don't do web servers/clients.  My expertise is in the Java/Swing
systems I build for NLP research.  Now that I'm retired and working from
home, I can't just walk down the hall and talk with our systems experts.
