I'm trying to setup a Resque worker as an Upstart init script to be used by Monit in a Rails app. I'm not a sysop and I've tried to write this using examples from other init script we have on our server, here's what I got:
start on startup stop on shutdown pre-start script cd /var/www/my-app/current end script script exec bundle exec rake environment resque:work RAILS_ENV=staging PIDFILE=/var/run/resque.pid QUEUE=sync >> /var/log/resque.log end script
But it doesn't work, if I try
sudo start resque I get:
resque start/running, process XXXX
Nothing is being started as far as I know, there's no Resque process to be found nor there's log file. I'm quite lost as to how to get it working.
Update: I've found the syslog file and it says:
Nov 4 17:20:09 fantasysports init: resque main process (3057) terminated with status 2
Update: I've tried to run it using sudo (yeah that doesn't make sense!) and removed the output redirection to the log file and now I get a different status code:
Nov 4 17:29:44 fantasysports init: resque main process (3276) terminated with status 10
Update: Ended up ditching Upstart for init.d, as
start-stop-daemon is much better documented and it give me complete control of what's going on.
