(Rocket.Chat Tutorial) Can't get forever-service working
I’ve been following this tutorial for getting Rocket.Chat running and the only problem I have is getting rocket.chat as a service.
This is the command I entered into the terminal. I made sure I was in the /Rocket.Chat directory.
sudo forever-service install -s main.js -e "ROOT_URL=https://xxx/ MONGO_URL=mongodb://localhost:27017/rocketchat PORT=3000" rocketchat
(I x’d out the domain name because I don’t want it public.)
After I run that command I get this:
forever-service version 0.5.9 Platform - Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS runuserpath not found Adding system startup for /etc/init.d/rocketchat ... /etc/rc0.d/K20rocketchat -> ../init.d/rocketchat /etc/rc1.d/K20rocketchat -> ../init.d/rocketchat /etc/rc6.d/K20rocketchat -> ../init.d/rocketchat /etc/rc2.d/S20rocketchat -> ../init.d/rocketchat /etc/rc3.d/S20rocketchat -> ../init.d/rocketchat /etc/rc4.d/S20rocketchat -> ../init.d/rocketchat /etc/rc5.d/S20rocketchat -> ../init.d/rocketchat rocketchat provisioned successfully Commands to interact with service rocketchat Start - "sudo service rocketchat start" Stop - "sudo service rocketchat stop" Status - "sudo service rocketchat status" Restart - "sudo service rocketchat restart"
After that I ran this command:
sudo service rocketchat start
And this is the output I get:
When I go to my Rocket Chat url, it isn’t running at all. If I stop the service and run “node main.js” in /Rocket.Chat the service will run normally.
Does anyone know what the problem is? Thank you!
