I am running Ubuntu server 11.04. I have created an Upstart user job as described here.
I have the following file at my
start on started mysql stop on stopping mysql chdir /home/myuser/mydir/project exec /home/myuser/mydir/env/bin/python /home/myuser/mydir/project/manage.py sensors respawn respawn limit 10 90
myuser I can start, stop, and reload the job fine- it works perfectly:
$ start sensors sensors start/running, process 1332 $ stop sensors sensors stop/waiting
The problem is that the job is not starting automatically at boot when
mysql starts. After a fresh boot,
mysql is running but my
sensors job is not.
What's strange, is that although the job doesn't begin on bootup, if I use
sudo to restart
mysql it does indeed start my job. The following commands are run as
myuser from a fresh startup:
$ status sensors sensors stop/waiting $ sudo restart mysql mysql start/running, process 1209 $ status sensors sensors start/running, process 1229
The documentation for Upstart user jobs is pretty limited. What is the correct technique to have a user job start automatically on startup of the system?
I know I can just throw something in
rc.local to start it, or I could move my
/etc/init but I'm curious if there is a way to do it using just Upstart.
