Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Installation of openACS

Posted by Gustaf Neumann on
i assume, you have installed OpenACS with the script from

the 2nd script ( installs a systemd file /lib/systemd/system/${oacs_service}.service and/or a upstart script /etc/init/${oacs_service}.conf, where $oacs_service is per default "oacs-5-9". Do you have these files?

if i see correctly, Ubuntu 16.04 has switched to systemd, so the .service file is the preferred path, although one can use ubuntu 16.04 with upstart as well (see [1]). So this depends on your configuration.

When using systemd, don't forget to run "sudo systemctl daemon-reload". See e.g. [2]. I've updated the wiki page [3] to include these commands.
