    Hi!

    Today I installied Monit following this tutorial but monit won#t start:
    Code:
    # /etc/init.d/monit start
    /etc/init.d/monit: 39: [: start: unexpected operator
            Please, use MONIT_OPTS variable in /etc/default/monit
            to specify command line options for monit.
     * Starting daemon monitor monit                                         [ OK ]
    The Tutorial is from 2006 and for Debian, so I'm sure something changed for Ubuntu 12.04 ;) But what?

    Can you help me?

    Thanks a lot!
    Andreas

    Well, I followed the tutorial you linked, but...:
