Message: “start: Job failed to start” on Ubuntu 14.04

Hello,

I'm following along the How To Serve Flask Applications with uWSGI and Nginx on Ubuntu 14.04 and in the step Create an Upstart Script, when I try

sudo start myproject 

my VPS returns me this message:

start: Job failed to start

How can I fix this?

I'm running an Ubuntu 14.04 Droplet and I already do all the previous steps successfully.

Cheers,

Cesar

  • Hi! Are there any errors in the upstart job log?

    sudo tail -30 /var/log/upstart/myproject.log
    
  • Hi @kamaln7 ,

    Thank you for your reply!

    My friends, please double check your files (.conf, .ini etc) because - at least for me - the problem was... a typo... :(

    Sorry for casualness...

    Cheers,

    Cesar
