I have an ubuntu 10.04 server and tried to create an upstart script:
description "node-workerListener" author "me" start on startup stop on shutdown script # We found $HOME is needed. Without it, we ran into problems export HOME="/var/www" exec sudo -u www-data /usr/local/bin/node /var/www/vhost/node/test/workerListener.js 2>&1 >> /var/log/node/helloworld.log end script
This should start a node script, which works, if I start it manually on the command line. But when i try to "start node-workerListener" I get the message "node-workerListener start/running, process 1323", but it doesn't.
In /var/log/syslog: "...init: node-workerListener main process (1317) terminated with status 1"
What can I do?
You can also use forever https://github.com/nodejitsu/forever to run the node process.
