PM2 MM2 Not starting on start up
BINGO Got it to work. Not sure if others had a problem with this or its something new. but here it is.
However, there is a bug on the generated startup script that prevents PM2 from automatically run at startup. You will need to edit /etc/init.d/pm2-init.sh and
replace: export PM2_HOME="/root/.pm2"
with: export PM2_HOME="/home/pi/.pm2"
Got this from here: https://bekti.io/automatically-start-a-node-js-application-on-raspberry-pi/
Hey,I’m having this exact same issue. I’m trying to follow your steps but I can’t locate the pm2-init.sh file. I have the pm2 installed. I go follow the same directory paths as stated but that one file isn’t there. Any ideas about where the file is? It has to exist somewhere since I’m able to use it.
@sebzx10r Its directory is /etc/init.d/pm2-init.sh
@sebzx10r The way i did it also is used WinSCP to shh in to raspberry.
Hey,yes, I go to that same exact directory,but the file isn’t there. And yes I can load MM with pm2 start mm.sh. That’s what so weird about the whole thing. It’s as if the file doesn’t exist but yet the program is working somehow.
Hey,I kind of did a work around. I found this on another forum:
I also searched for days without success but then, I got it to work quite simply.
In Raspian click Menu,Preferences,Main Menu Editor
Click Preferences and check Default applications for LXSession
Click OK and close main menu editor
Now click Menu and Under Preferences click on Default applications for LXSession
LXSession configuration opens
Under Manual autostarted applications paste in your java command line
close the LXSession configuration application and reboot your pi
your java app should run after reboot
@sebzx10r What line did you put in the field? I can’t get it to work.
I solved the same issue by using the command:
sudo pm2 startup systemd -u pi --hp /home/pi
And then using
pm2 saveto save the state.
