Hi all. A bit of a saga for me.

I'm using LO headless from within a web server.

The server is the perl-based mojolicious, and calls LO do do some file conversions from .odt to .doc and pdf.

LO is called like:
runcmd( 'soffice', '--headless', '--convert-to', $filter, '--outdir', $outdir, $odtfile );

followed by a call to mojo's render() stuff to pass the file to the user.

Which often works.

But (with varying frequency) LO seems to grab the web server's port somehow and sets up its own listen on it. This somewhat damages the web link :-| I've seen multiple copies of soffice and oosplash listening on the same port (a high-numbered, obscure one). I can't even see how this is possible

The question is, why does it do this, and how do I stop it?


Linux mint, btw, ooo
