I followed the Slicehost tutorial here and was able to get thin installed in init.d to be able to start at boot.
I also created the required configuration file. When running thin from the command line logged in as
root using the command below it works perfectly.
thin start -C /etc/thin/:config:.yml
However, when running thin using
service thin start I get the following from the log files:
>> Writing PID to tmp/pids/thin.3000.pid >> Changing process privilege to apache:apache >> Using rack adapter >> Exiting! /var/www/sites/<path>/vendor/bundle/ruby/1.9.1/gems/guard-1.6.2/lib/guard.rb:23:in `expand_path': couldn't find HOME environment -- expanding `~' (ArgumentError)
I suspect there is some environment configuration setting missing but have no idea what to look for.
Has anyone been able to get this working or have any suggestions on what I can do to get this working?
