View Full Version : [ubuntu] Service setup problem (should be easy)

February 25th, 2010, 02:25 PM

I've been a long time Ubuntu desktop user but now I happen to be working with a server environment in which I don't have too much experience with.

I have this java server (exist-db) which I need to setup as a service. I followed the usual steps of adding a link in /etc/init.d and then calling update-rc.d exist defaults. The linked shell script (exist.sh) has been made executable also.

The issue is that the script can find another program it needs to use:


# after that...


I've tried everything, but nothing seems to fix this

Thanks for your help

Your script is looking in whatever directory it is in (the ./ part) for a program named "wrapper". Find that on your system, change the path to it in the script.

Thanks for your reply,

I'm afraid everything look OK. I mean, the referenced file is where it should. I was wondering if this has to do with other issues like ownerships or permissions of some kind

So what is the exact error your get when trying to run the script?
