I'm trying to install plumi

And I did sudo apt-get install supervisor but ./bin/supervisord doesn't work, nor ./bin/supervisorctl status

sudo service supervisor status shows that it's running but does not show what services are running so please tell me how supervisor work and how I could check what service are running

Were you able to execute ./bin/python && ./bin/buildout -v without errors? – i08in May 25 '14 at 13:40
Why you install supervisor? and how exactly it doesn't work? – Braiam May 26 '14 at 18:29
Since Oct 2013 that repository hasn't been updated. The script fails for me. I don't think you will have luck. – Braiam May 26 '14 at 18:43
@braiam the one in the repo won't work you have to use – Lynob May 26 '14 at 18:55

Do you have Supervisor installed? If no do this first:

sudo apt-get install supervisor

Once this has completed, the supervisor daemon should already be started, as the prebuilt packages come with an init script that will also ensure the Supervisor is restarted after a system reboot. You can ensure this is the case by running:

sudo service supervisor restart

Now you can read the link here for more information about installing Plumi.

More information can be found here.
