I'm on ubuntu 18 and these are the lines causing the issue while starting up OCserv

run-as-user = nobody
run-as-group = daemon

I've tried a lot of other combinations but I'm out of luck

    Does the nobody user actually exist? getent passwd | grep nobody – Mugurel Dec 31 '18 at 0:50
  • @Mugurel nobody:x:65534:65534:nobody:/nonexistent:/usr/sbin/nologin that's what I get. It means its inexistent? – Netizen110 Dec 31 '18 at 0:53

    No, that basically says the home directory of this user is /nonexistent. How did you install ocserv, did the package create a username for OCserv? I'd use that. Check for any entries in /etc/passwd. – Mugurel Dec 31 '18 at 1:20
  • @Mugurel No it didn't create a username for OCserv. – Netizen110 Dec 31 '18 at 10:55
