Urbackup (ubuntu) won't start on boot up

Urbackup has to be manually started and then works fine. Not seeing any errors in the backup logs. I’m running ubuntu 18.04 server. Running sudo service urbackupsrv seems to start but I have to manually run it to get the web UI.

Can you just add this to your rc.local upon startup?

sudo su -
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.local
nano /etc/rc.d/rc.local
#!/bin/sh -e
# rc.local
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
# By default this script does nothing.
exit 0

I guess I don’t understand why it doesn’t work out of the box but I will try this

I wouldn’t be the one to ask, I apologize; we had a spare Windows VM that was doing nothing, and we chose to use it for our UrBackup server.

I just know that when I’ve messed around with crontab and rc.local I got it to do what I needed it to do – after a long testing period since I don’t understand it all that well.

Perhaps one of the devs or a mod who knows more could answer why it isn’t out of the box.
