  • When trying to connect to https://hipchat.yourcompanyname.com, you face the error "Oops! We've been notified and will fix this issue as soon as we can".

  • Users were not able to login to any Hipchat application on any devices.




  • Hipchat Server v1.3.5
  • Application originally deployed earlier than 2015

Diagnostic Steps

  • Restarting Hipchat Server services with HipChat upgrade --restart throws the following error: Error: Please see /var/log/chef.log

  • The following error occurs in /var/log/chef.log:

    Error: service name conflict, mysqld already defined in /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid


An existing configuration for the monit service conflicts with part of the upgrade process to Hipchat v1.3.5. This should only occur for Hipchat Servers deployed earlier than 2015 listed in HipChat Server 1.x Release Notes.


Run the following commands to remove the conflicting configuration file and re-run the upgrade process:

sudo dont-blame-hipchat "rm -f /etc/monit.d/mysqld.monitrc"

hipchat upgrade --force-upgrade
