Usually we run EasyIoT server as service in background.

First download and uncompress  easyioy to /etc/init.d folder:

sudo cp easyiot /etc/init.d/

Then we execute to set execution rights:

sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/easyiot

sudo chmod +x

sudo update-rc.d easyiot defaults

After that will EasyIoT server automatically start at boot as service.


It is possibel to stop server service with:

sudo /etc/init.d/easyiot stop

But it is recommendet to stop it in user interface under Config->General settings->Shutdown server


Start server command

sudo /etc/init.d/easyiot start

I have a problem with starting IOT-server as a demon, but I solved it & now everything is OK. Now it started after booting before login of any user.
The problem was in one of lines of "easyiot" file. Exactly in this one (original file):
But IOT-server was installed at "/home/easyiot" directory.
Therefore I changed this line to:

In /etc/rc.local

(nano /etc/rc.local)

Just before the line exit 0


sudo mono /home/easyiot/EasyIoT.exe

Save the file
Now when you reboot it vil start up in the background

You need to edit this, it dosent work at all :-(

If you have trouble setting this manually use image file where everything is configured.

I think you really need to check your install instructions. In the first installation tutorial you tell people to install it to "/home/easyiot/" here you're telling people to change permissions in "/home/pi/easyiot/"

the code in your easyiot file in "/etc/init.d/" has an error which causes "unable to stat /home/pi//easyiot/ (No such file or directory)"

notice the double //?
I installed in /home/easyiot/ so I needed to edit the install path line to be
remove the /pi/ or if you have it installed in home/pi/ delete only the final / after pi

Doing this makes the startup script work as intended, no errors. service is running fine after reboot.

Hi, when i start as service everything goes fine after changing port to 1301. But it gives me a certificate error (invalid certificate?) and then when i continue open program. But veeeeery slow to open.
Then it works perfect. I've used normal server installation and this tutorial.

I've updated tutorial. I think the problem was that when you copied raw file some characters are corrupted. Please try new setup procedure.

The problem was that there was no easyiot init.d version to use, now you have added and it works. But you should chech the run as service tutorial. it's not at ini.d dir, its on the install path. Thanks now its working, i am having problems to set ssl connection but i will let you know if i get stucked! Thanks
