Hello, I am experiencing some weird file path behavior. Let me first say I don't work in Linux often, hardly ever. I am moving some dev/test servers to Linux for just that, testing. I have it all setup and I am able to start it, but not in the way I would think it would work. Let me explain. I have created a user called sysadmin and created a home dir from the root it is /home/sysadmin and when I login with the sysadmin user I am in the sysadmin folder by default. I have created a folder inside of sysadmin called servers and I have put my servers inside there, one at the moment for testing. So the full path to the paper.jar file is /home/sysadmin/servers/build01 So know you know how the file structure is setup let me explain the weird behavior or what I think is weird behavior. from inside the sysadmin home folder if I do ls I see the server folder. So one would think to start the start.sh script you should just be able to do /servers/build01/.start.sh and it would run the start script but instead I get /servers/build01/.start.sh: No such file or directory when the file and the directory do in fact exist. So if I do /home/sysadmin/servers/build01/.start.sh the full path even though I am already in the sysadmin folder I get this error. Unable to access jarfile paper.jar but the start.sh script is in the same folder as the paper.jar file. But if I do a cd /home/sysadmin/servers/build01 and then do ./.start.sh then it starts no problem. So they only way it will start is if I run the start.sh while inside the actual build01 folder where the script is. I cannot run it outside from the sysadmin root even if I put the absolute file path to it and that script is in the same folder as the paper.jar. I would like to be able to run this from the sysadmin root folder. Is this not possible? Also one would think this would work since if you setup a service to start the server on reboot or startup it uses the same absolute path too, but it doesn't run either. Even if I run it as root like this... Code (Text): [email protected]:~# /home/sysadmin/servers/build01/.start.sh Error: Unable to access jarfile paper.jar Now I understand I am outside the folder, but I am providing the absolute path to the script and the script is call the paper.jar file in the same folder as the script. What am I missing here? Is this just something as simple as a permission issue? I wouldn't think so since not even root can run it and you have to be in the same dir to run the start script. Is that normal? -Thanks!
