Installation broken (macOS)February 19, 2020 at 1:11pm
While debugging a bulk load script (graphql) I started getting a strange exception "cannot run another command".
I rolled back my code to a point at which it was working, but was still getting the exception so I wondered if the server had got itself into a bad state. I wasn't sure how to restart the server, and tried a couple of
launchctlcommands, but no joy.
I ended up rebooting the machine, and now EdgeDB doesn't seem to be running at all. I get connection refused errors. I've tried
sudo launchctl enable system/com.edgedb.edgedb-1-alpha2, but it doesn't change anything.
I've also noticed that
launchctl print system/com.edgedb.edgedb-1-alpha2prints
Could not find service "com.edgedb.edgedb-1-alpha2" in domain for system
Any advice? I guess I will try reinstalling.

Interesting. The service plist is installed into
launchctl bootstrap-ed into the
systemdomain, so, as far as I understand, the situation above would only happen if the service was somehow
launchdon macOS is quite arcane. Were you doing anything specific with your system when this happened, like an OS update?
