Getting towards the end of configuring my myth backend, I'm trying to set up monitoring using monit according to the wiki guide.
I can get monit to run and start its webserver correctly, but when I try to start monitoring mythbackend, I get stuck at initializing for mythbackend and Execution failed for mysql on the web interface. I'm using exactly the config from the howto for these two monitoring processes, started manually by me with both services working fully.
Looking at /var/run, there isn't a directory mythtv, and I can't find mythbackend.pid anywhere. There is a directory called mysqld, but it only contains mysqld.sock. I'm thinking this might be the cause of the problem?
I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 with everything installed from standard repos in the past couple of days.
Any ideas what's going wrong here and what I can do to solve it?
