Hi

I need to install jetty on ubuntu but i'm not really sure what i'm doing.

I did apt-get install jetty

and then it said it couldn't start the service as NO_START = 1 so i editted the file to N0_START = 0 as recommended and then started the service by service jetty start

I really don't know much about services under linux
Is this the correct way to start the service?

What permissions is the service running with? What user/group is it running under and how do i find out these details for a service?

thanks

If you've edited that file while Jetty was still running, you may have caused an error that forced the service to stop.

These are the commands used to stop and start the service.
 
sudo /etc/init.d/jetty stop
sudo /etc/init.d/jetty start

Open in new window

To install Jetty:
 
sudo apt-get install jetty

Open in new window

Also, these libraries are also needed for Jetty to run correctly:
 
sudo apt-get install libjetty6-java
sudo apt-get install libjetty6-extra-java
sudo apt-get install jetty

Open in new window

If you've ran all these commands with sudo, you have installed them under ~root and they are running as such; with root permissions. I always check ubuntu forums for unbuntu related stuff.

i editted the file before i started the service

I coulnd't install the 2 packages:
 sudo apt-get install libjetty6-java
Reading package lists... Done

Reading state information... Done
Package libjetty6-java is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package libjetty6-java has no installation candidate

jetty is running under JETTY_USER (jetty by default).  that variable is set in /etc/default/jetty.

in Ubuntu (and Debian), services usually are configured via files in /etc/default, which are sourced (included) by service's startup script (in /etc/init or /etc/init.d).

the NO_START trick is a common way to install a service in disabled state.

libjetty6-* packages are obsolete, use libjetty-* ones.

ah this sounds familar - i think i have been told this before: services start off as root and then drop down to the user specified in the config files. is that right?
