Ubuntu: lora-app-server.service failed to load: No such file or directory


#1

I followed instruction to install Lora app server under Ubuntu, after that, I tried to run
/etc/init.d/lora-app-server start
-bash: /etc/init.d/lora-app-server: No such file or directory

not sure if my installation was successful or not?

I suspect the following commands problem…it is same as Lora server. Any thoughts?


sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 1CE2AFD36DBCCA00

sudo echo “deb https://artifacts.loraserver.io/packages/1.x/deb stable main” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/loraserver.list
sudo apt-get update

I want to know whether “deb https://artifacts.loraserver.io/packages/1.x/deb stable main” has the problem…in the server side…

Thanks @brocaar

But we are using service lora-app-server start command for starting lora app server.

After install sudo apt-get install lora-app-server no lora app server service created in /etc/init.d/

Please help…!

I’m not sure if you customized anything to your Ubuntu 14.04 installation, but by default I don’t think systemd is installed by default. Please see also the post-install.sh script which is executed after installation: https://github.com/brocaar/loraserver/blob/master/packaging/scripts/post-install.sh. Maybe that gives you some clues what is going wrong.

To use systemd, I recommend to use one of the following distributions which by default are using systemd:

  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
  • Debian 9 (Stretch)

I have tested installing the latest lora-app-server on Ubuntu 14.04 (clean install) and can not reproduce your issue.
