Server not starting
#1  dator 09-10-2018, 09:56 AM
I stumbled upon problem with running calibre server after I attempted to add some more libraries.

Below is the error I get when restarting server after changes were made

● calibre.service - Calibre Service Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/calibre.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Mon 2018-09-10 14:22:24 CEST; 22min ago Main PID: 8673 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

Sep 10 14:28:27 vps systemd[1]: [/lib/systemd/system/calibre.service:11] Missing '='.

My configuration

Description=Calibre Service


--port xxxx \
--log=/home/username/.calibre.log \
--enable-auth \
/home/username/Library1 \
/home/username/Library2 \
/home/username/Library3 \
/home/username/Library4 \

It looks like calibre library called "Library" is missing. Strange as I didn't add library called like that or had it setup earlier either.


I tried to resolve the issue few hours later since my last post and server seems to be working fine.

Still I am interested why it didn't work in the first place.
