mangos three MaNGOS service won't start, manual run works fine.

Question

I'm having similar issues as others stated running mangosd as a service in Ubuntu. I can start it manually with the same command that is in the service but can not start with systemctl as described in the Ubuntu 16 install guide.

 

My mangosd.service as described in the guide setup:

[Unit]
Description=WoW 3.3.5a
After=network.target mysql.service [email protected]

[Service]
Type=simple
User=mangos
ExecStart=/home/mangos/two/bin/mangosd -c /home/mangos/two/etc/mangosd.conf
StandardInput=tty
TTYPath=/dev/tty3
TTYReset=yes
TTYVHangup=yes
Restart=on-abort

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

 

My console output from systemctl status mangosd:

mangos@wow:~/two/bin$ systemctl status mangosd

Thank you so much for your quick reply. After I was reading another post on the same subject I noticed his service file looked like:

 

[Unit]
Description=WoW Vanilla service
After=network.target mysql.service [email protected]

[Service]
Type=simple
User=mangos
StandardInput=tty
TTYPath=/dev/tty3
TTYReset=yes
TTYVHangup=yes
WorkingDirectory=/home/mangos/zero/zero_server/bin
ExecStart=/home/mangos/zero/zero_server/bin/mangosd -c /home/mangos/zero/zero_server/etc/mangosd.conf
Restart=on-abort

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

The only thing missing from the installation guides is the:

WorkingDirectory=/home/mangos/zero/bin

 

That solved my issue. Sorry for being quick on the question.

Now THIS is brilliant, great ryanbush81

I tested the above and this also proved to be the solution to my problem of launching ahbot/aiplayerbot with mangosd as a service

WorkingDirectory=/home/mangos/zero/zero_server/bin

This meta should be added to the Instruction Wikis for all *NIX flavours - currently missing

 

Ciao

U

 

BTW - I suspect  the above meta might also render the -c option on the ExecStart line redundant
