PyLoad not loading

Hi @JMSolo,

This is regarding PyLoad package. I’m able to run the Web interface when i run the following command from

/home/user/.pyload/ and if i close the SSH session or enter Control C the Pyload stops working. I have searched google and it says I have to add it as service to load it in the background.

That is what the systemd script does that fires it from your dashboard.

You should run setup-pyLoad after you install from either box or your dashboard. Then you can either type systemctl restart [email protected] or hit the refresh button for it on your dashboard.

Try that and then tell me what the return is from systemctl status [email protected]

Replace USERNAME with the actual username.

Here is the output from systemctl status [email protected]

[email protected] - pyLoad

Output of systemctl restart [email protected]

systemctl restart [email protected]
Job for [email protected] failed. See ‘systemctl status [email protected]’ and ‘journalctl -xn’ for details.

Will you do the uninstall and install it once more. Do the setup-pyLoad after the install and then refresh to start the service from your dashboard. See if you have it active then. You shouldn’t have to run the command from ssh as the systemd template runs those unattended.

It works now. I reinstalled and did a reboot and refreshed from dashboard.

Thank you once again:-)

when attempting to restart service via systemctl restart pyload getting the same error as op

i have also run setup-pyload but same issue will attempt a reinstall and reboot like OP did and post findings

EDIT: reinstalled ran setup-pyload restarted service and now its working… seems to not work on first install for some strange reason

I had noticed this on a couple of instances recently. On one server it installed just fine… then on another it had to be installed/uninstalled/installed to stick. Not quite sure, but now that I am back in the saddle I will give this an in depth look.

“setup-pyload” wont work, did a few re-installs any idea?

It’s a system command that requires to be ran as root. So, try to run as sudo or… as our readme recommends… root user. You can get to root by typing sudo su
