OpenBGPD - Upgrade Looking Glass

Page content

I’m running a BGP Looking Glass Server on, where can get some view about BGP running on the Global Internet.

Upgrade to 7.2

Did an Upgrade to the latest Version with my Script.

Upgrade was sucessful, but the BGP Service needs some Fix. Website show as “500 Internal Server Error”, and the Logs got a few messages like this:

tail -f /var/log/messages
