So before I begin, I am somewhat new to Ubuntu and this is my first NodeBB install, so I may have missed some basics here.
I have NodeBB installed on Ubuntu 16.04.3 x64. That was relatively easy, works a treat if I use the "./nodebb start" command from the install directory. The part where I am having trouble is I want NodeBB to be fired back up on reboot or failure automatically and I want to use the systemctl commands because it is natively available and because I don't want to further complicate things for myself.
I have a "nodebb.service" file in /etc/systemd/system/ and it is a copy and paste from the NodeBB run up instructions with the user and path/to/nodebb parts set to my environment ...
... When I do "systemctl start nodebb" or "service nodebb start" and I look at "journalctl -u nodebb" I get this...
That is the entire log output for that one "systemctl start nodebb". So you can see it launches nodeBB and immediately fails, repeats this process a few times and eventually times out / hits some kind of flood limit.
There is nothing in /var/nodebb/logs/output and nothing new in /var/log/syslog that isn't already in the journal linked above.
I honestly don't know for certain if it is a NodeBB problem or my Ubuntu knowledge, I'm leaning towards NodeBB. Can anyone help please?
