Twonky 8.5.1 / Debian 10 - how to enable autostart.

Post by synoptic » Wed Feb 26, 2020 10:44 am

Please, help me enable twonkyserver to autostart on Linux Debian 10.
With included documents it is not clear how to make autostart.

Thanks in advance to everyone.

Can someone give some advice?
I can start Twonky by hand, but cannot start it as service.

By Hand, it starts, but with a warning:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
user@server:/usr/local/twonky# ./twonky.sh start
Starting /usr/local/twonky/twonkystarter ...
user@server:/usr/local/twonky#
For image conversion and scaling the TwonkyServer utilizes ImageMagick. For details on the license please see /usr/local/twonky/cgi-bin/convert-readme.txt
Twonky Version 8.5.1
Snapshot Twonky_8.5.1_20180521 TA:c5bd20adecfd43fcf30c90b1271d424f773c1060
Platform x86-64_gcc520_glibc222_2__twonkyforum-x86-64-glibc-2.22
No TLS-server certificate found in tls_server.pem! Will use built-in keys (this is insecure)! You have been warned ...----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why it ask for TLS-sertificate? I don't need that. It simple local home server in my appartment.
Ok, how can fix that? Where can I find instructions how to create this TLS-sertificate at my own. Is there any docs?

Next.
I've tried to make service: /usr/lib/systemd/system/twonky.service
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Unit]
Description=Twonky Service

[Service]
Type=forking
ExecStart=/usr/local/twonky/twonky.sh start
ExecStop=/usr/local/twonky/twonky.sh stop
ExecReload=/usr/local/twonky/twonky.sh restart
User=... # obscured, here is a correct non root user that has access to folders: video, music, picture

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pretty simple.

When I start it:
# systemctl start twonky

● twonky.service - Twonky Service
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/twonky.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled)
Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2020-02-28 13:03:13 +05; 4min 58s ago
Process: 10187 ExecStart=/usr/local/twonky/twonky.sh start (code=exited, status=13)

фев 28 13:03:11 vxlab.ru systemd[1]: Starting Twonky Service...
фев 28 13:03:11 vxlab.ru systemd[1]: twonky.service: Control process exited, code=exited, status=13/n/a

фев 28 13:03:13 vxlab.ru systemd[1]: Failed to start Twonky Service.


What is wrong? Why "status=13"?

Thanks in advance.
