prosody 0.8.2. still waiting

Posted on 10. Juli 2012 Comments

I tried to start prosody with user-privileges (with user/group prosody) but I kept getting this message from prosodyctl start:

Still waiting...
Proody is still not running. Please give it some time or check your log files for errors.

But there were no errors in the log-file. If I deleted the log-file nothing was created again. I tried giving all the prosody folders 777 rights and chown‚d them to the prosody-user, still…same error. I then went to the Prosody MUC. Once again, Zash helped me to isolate the error: the pid-file could not be written by the user. So I just changed the line




Flattr this!


  1. You can also achieve like this:

    mkdir /var/run/prosody
    chown prosody:prosody /var/run/prosody

    and add this line to your conf file:
    pidfile = „/var/run/prosody/“
