I somehow got stuck with starting up the INDI webmanager upon boot process (I am using the rock64).

When running the command "sudo systemctl status indiwebmanager.service" this is the message I receive:

● indiwebmanager.service - INDI Web Manager
Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/indiwebmanager.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
Active: inactive (dead)

Since it says "inactive (dead)", I reckon something went wrong.

This is what I saved into the /ect/systemd/system directory:

Description=INDI Web Manager

ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/indi-web -v


Apparantely, the INDI web manager is not starting up (I believe). Is the anything I need to do concerning AutoStart? On github it says "If you selected any profile as Auto Start" then the INDI web manager shall be automatically started" - is there anything I need to set up?

Many thanks,

I don't have an answer to your problem yet but are you able to start indi-web -v without the autostart script?
Just to be sure it works.

I set this up just today but on Raspbian Stretch. Is it the same for Ubuntu?

Taken from GitHub.
The provided file indiwebmanager.service is an example systemd service file that can be used to run indi-web as pi user. If your username is different please edit the file and change the username first.

Copy your preferred service file to /etc/systemd/system:

sudo cp indiwebmanager.service /etc/systemd/system/
sudo chmod 644 /etc/systemd/system/indiwebmanager.service
Now configure systemd to load the service file during boot:

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl enable indiwebmanager.service
Finally, reboot the system for your changes to take effect:

sudo reboot
After startup, check the status of the INDI Web Manager service:

sudo systemctl status indiwebmanager.service
If all appears OK, you can start using the Web Application using any browser.
