I have a Beaglebone Black (BBB) running Angstrom Linux (v2012.12). Since none of my other Linux machines have systemd yet, and Angstrom does, I figured I'd get familiar with systemd before its shoved down my throat on Debian. I'm fairly clear on systemd usage/capabilities but for one error I get when trying to start lighttpd. I assume the format of the error message is typical for a systemd service error..
When I try to start the lighttpd service, I get the following:
root@beaglebone:/etc# systemctl start lighttpd.service Job for lighttpd.service failed. See 'systemctl status lighttpd.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.
If I run
systemctl status lighttpd.service, I get the following
root@beaglebone:/etc# systemctl status lighttpd.service lighttpd.service - Lightning Fast Webserver With Light System Requirements Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/lighttpd.service; enabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Mon 2015-02-16 07:23:30 PST; 3min 3s ago Process: 872 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/lighttpd -D -f /etc/lighttpd.conf (code=exited, status=255) CGroup: name=systemd:/system/lighttpd.service
journalctl -xn gets the following:
Feb 16 07:28:04 beaglebone systemd: Starting Lightning Fast Webserver With Light System Requirements... Feb 16 07:28:04 beaglebone systemd: lighttpd.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=255/n/a Feb 16 07:28:04 beaglebone systemd: Failed to start Lightning Fast Webserver With Light System Requirements. Feb 16 07:28:05 beaglebone systemd: Unit lighttpd.service entered failed state
All of the systemd documentation I've been able to find doesn't go into details about errors like this. I never had any trouble with the old-school way of starting daemons, and I've been playing with Linux since 1995. Help!
