pyLoad Restart Problem


#1

Hi to all,

I have a problem with pyLoad. I can install it without any problem BUT when i need to restart my VPS for some reason pyLoad isnt restarting. Every time i need to restart my VPS or lets say for some reason the VPS restarts by itself i need to uninstall pyLoad and then again reinstall it from scratch. I issued some commands as root to figure out what is going on. For example right now i restarted my VPS and pyLoad shows up in the Service Control Center with a red dot and is not accesible at all. So i typed both two commands as root:

systemctl restart [email protected]
systemctl start [email protected]

For both commands in got the following:

Job for [email protected] failed because a configured resource limit was exceeded. See "systemctl status [email protected]" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

So i typed the following command:

systemctl status [email protected]

The output was:

[email protected] - pyLoad
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/[email protected]; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: failed (Result: resources) since Sat 2017-01-14 17:19:27 EET; 1min 55s ago

I also typed the command:

journalctl -xe

So pyLoad is a great piece of software but for me it has the bug that when i need to restart the VPS, pyLoad doesnt want to start as a service. I have to box remove pyload then install it again via box install pyload and then issue the command setup-pyLoad to set it up from scratch. Then and only then pyLoad is appearing with a green dot in the Service Command Center and it is working. Until again for some reason lets say my VPS reboots etc and then again i need to do all again.

Any clue?

Thanks in advance

George

In theory, you shouldn’t have to reboot your system so much. I haven’t encountered this quandary myself, however; I will setup a demo instance tonight and try to replicate this.

Hi @JMSolo,

Any news about this Problem?

I hav the same Problem. It seems something delete the “/var/run/pyload” folder. Just do an

mkdir -p /var/run/pyload
chown -R mantax.mantax /var/run/pyload

Then you restart the Service @ the Webinterface and it works again.
