    Hi,

    after last restart, i check that monit[mmonit.com/monit/] that i installed 1 month ago, and which work well this period, don't start.

    Quote:
    Try to restart, start; check all config files, /etc/inittab/ {where i add line to start monit}, everything is well, besides monit don't start. :-(

    I reintall monit, but no result.

    Checking /var/log/messages i find such lines. IMHO this is related to my problem
    Quote:
    Any1 know, what can be problem?

    Any advice will be appreciated


    ==========
    Also find few strange lines in /var/log/messages/ that i don't check before

    here is my /etc/inittab/

    Which distribution are you using? Does
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/monit restart
    work?

    Which distribution are you using? What's in your logs when you run
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/monit restart
    ?

    hmm .. very strange

    what i'm doing?
    I answer to all your questions, just looks like you don't read it.

    For example last question you ask 2 times, and both times i answer.

    Regarding logs - pls check my first post.

    thank you

    You just posted the output of /etc/init.d/monit start, but not what was happening in the logs at the same time...
