I have an upstart script that will start a custom jetty server. When I do
sudo start [myservice] nothing happens. Subsequently,
sudo status [myservice] show it as:
[myservice] start/killed, process 3586.
Here's the script in /etc/init/[myservice].conf:
description "[description]" author "[my name and email]" start on runlevel  stop on runlevel  respawn expect fork script sudo -u www-data /path/to/grafserv-start.sh >> /tmp/upstart.log 2>&1 end-script
And here is
#!/bin/bash /usr/bin/java -Djetty.port=3070 -jar /path/to/grafserv/trunk/start.jar echo "Done starting GrafServ"
I've tried redirecting the output of the script command to a tmp logfile, but that file is never created. When I start it, I just get a hang, until I ^C. Also, I tried running it with strace but that gave me a lot of stuff about sockets.
