Can anyone help me debug my upstart script


Recommended Posts



I'm having issues with my upstart job and I'm not sure why.


If I run the following command from the terminal all works fine:


sudo /opt/utorrent-server/utserver -settingspath /opt/utorrent-server -logfile /opt/utorrent-server/utserver.log



However my upstart script doesnt seem to work, the process is not running after I run this and no logfile has been created


I've no idea what's wrong
