I have a web service written in Golang that I need to fire up using Upstart.
I can run the service executable (named word) on port 5555 from within it's directory manually like so:
curl -i http://127.0.0.1:5555/api/word returns the correct response (which is some JSON).
Now, I need to run this service via Upstart. I've written this script (called word.conf):
start on runlevel  stop on runlevel [!2345] chdir /home/word setgid word setuid word export PORT=5555 exec ./word
I run it via
sudo start word
status word then tells me that the service is running and I see no errors in the Upstart error logs.
When trying to hit the service again via
curl -i http://127.0.0.1:5555/api/word I get a
curl: (7) couldn't connect to host error.
This seems like it has to be some sort of permissions issue, but I can't pinpoint it.
I tried removing the
setuid and running with no luck. I do have a user called
I'm on Ubuntu 12.04.3.
