I cannot get the most basic script working on monitoring mongodb on ubuntu 16.04 monit 5.16
check process mongod with pidfile /var/run/mongod.pid group database start program = "/usr/sbin/service mongod start" stop program = "/usr/sbin/service mongod stop" if failed host 127.0.0.1 port 27017 protocol http and request "/" with timeout 15 seconds then restart
I get the error:
Error reading pid from file '/var/run/mongod.pid'
but when I run
cat /var/run/mongod.pid as a regular user I do get the value 51455
I've changed permissions making it both less (0x777) and more restrictive to no avail. Anyone come across this?
