Using the Admin Interface to Stop MarkLogic Server

  2. Click on the name of the host you want to shut down.
  3. Click the Status tab on the top right.
  4. Click Shutdown.
  5. A confirmation message displays while shutting down. Click OK to shut down the server.

    MarkLogic Server must be running in order for you to use the Admin Interface. Once you have stopped the server, you will no longer be able to access the Admin Interface until you start MarkLogic Server again; to restart the server, run the system command for your platform as described in Starting the Server.

  3. Click Restart.
  4. A confirmation message displays while restarting. Click OK to restart MarkLogic Server.

You may also manually stop and start the server as described above.

The restart operation normally completes within a few seconds. It is possible, however, for it to take longer under some conditions (for example, if the Security database needs to run recovery or if the connectivity between hosts in a cluster is slow). If it takes longer than a few seconds for MarkLogic Server to restart, than the Admin Interface might return a 503: Service Unavailable message. If you encounter this situation, wait several seconds and then reload the Admin Interface.
