So I’ve had to play with upstart because that’s how packaged gogs handles the init script of gogs…
Anyways what’s awesome is that if you want to run mysql on the same box, gogs will try and start, then it will try and talk to mysql, and after a random amount of time it will just give up on life and die in a fire… which is really annoying and sad.
So what did I have to do? A terrible hack like this:
ubuntu@ip-172-31-42-43:~$ cat /etc/init/gogs-web-1.conf start on starting gogs-web stop on stopping gogs-web respawn script until nc -z localhost 3306; do echo "waiting for port 3306 to open" sleep 1 done env PORT=6000 exec gogs run web >> /var/log/gogs/web-1.log 2>&1 end script
Which I basically ripped from here: http://eosrei.net/articles/2014/11/waiting-processportservice-custom-upstart-service
I hate upstart.
