I'm trying to figure out why runit will not boot or give me the status for the managed applications. Running on Ubuntu 12.04.
I created /service, /etc/sv/myapp (with a run script, a config file, a log folder and a run script inside of it). I create a symlink from /service/ to /etc/sv/myapp
When I run
sudo sv s /service/*
I get the following error message:
warning: /service/myapp: unable to open supervice/ok: file does not exist
Some of my Googling revealed that supposedly rebooting the svscan service might fix this, but killing it and running svscanboot didn't make a difference.
Any suggestions? Am I missing a step here somewhere?
