Question

Rocketchat 1-Click Install Dead After Update Attempt

I had a rocket chat server running via the 1-click install process. I attempted to update the rocketchat version using:

rocketchatctl update

The update failed, and now I can’t get rocket chat back up and running. Here are the relevant rocketchat logs:

Hi @dwDolphin ,

What do you have in your /lib/systemd/system/rocketchat.service ? And can you check journalctl -xe ?
