Cannot type into screen

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I am running CentOS 6 and am using screens to manage my server but it seems like I am having a slight issue. Randomly at times, after I detach from a screen and reattach, I cannot type any commands into it. Any idea whats the issue?

    Thanks,
    Faraaz
     
  2. Sounds like it might be still "attached" to an old session. You can use "-d" which will detach it before reattaching.

    Code (Text):
    screen -d -r [ID/name]
