[stunnel-users] Wrapping a CherryPy server?

Hmm, I guess I didn't send my previous followup to the list.  After setting the log to output properly, I was able to troubleshoot my problem.  The chroot directory was non-existent and therefore didn't allow my .pid to be created.  I have created the directory and everything now works as it should.

Thanks for the help. Sorry for the trouble.

can you call stunnel using the forground option and check the logfile?

start stunnel like this ...
$ stunnel -D debug -f -o /var/log/stunnel.log ........
