I'm trying to setup upstart to run with my Node js and Socket.io server.
env NODE_BIN=/usr/bin/node env APP_DIR=/root/quizens env SCRIPT_FILE="quizens.js" env LOG_FILE=/root/quizens.log env RUN_AS="root" start on filesystem stop on shutdown respawn respawn limit 1 10 script touch $LOG_FILE chown $RUN_AS:$RUN_AS $LOG_FILE chdir $APP_DIR exec sudo -u $RUN_AS sh -c "$NODE_BIN $SCRIPT_FILE >> $LOG_FILE 2>&1" end script
When I run
start quizens in the log file I get
Cannot find module fb.... altough if i simply start the server from command line it works. The modules are installed with -g and they reside in
I can't find a problem while on my local machine it works like a charm, but not when putting it on a softlayer instance.
The difference is that the local machine Node is installed in /usr/local/bin/node not in /usr/bin/node. Is this the problem?
EDIT: Yesterday I added another IP for the instance. I don't know if this has anything to do with upstart...
