I have a 12.04 version Ubuntu server that has been working fine until today when I rebooted it. It stalled on start up with a message about monit not having the proper credentials. I have managed to fix this problem (by editing the monit file and adding allow user-password) and in recovery mode if I start the service manually is works fine (says [OK]) and returns to the prompt. however, when I reboot the computer it gets to the monit command and stops (it says [OK] on the right. it says...
Starting Daemon monitor monit [OK]

and then nothing! does anyone have any idea what might be stopping this from continuing?
