Snapt Aria for Linux not starting after a reboot

When you install the Snapt Aria Linux bundle, you might find that after your first reboot that the Snapt Aria UI is not accessible anymore. This is because of the service that runs Snapt Aria has not been started.

There are 2 options that you use. Please choose the one that works best for your environment.

Please note: This is only applicable to a Snapt Aria Linux Bundle Installation
The Snapt Aria VM images will auto-launch the services are a reboot.


Snapt Aria Linux Installation Option 1: rc.local

If you are running the Snapt Aria for Linux bundle you need to ensure you run the

/usr/local/snapt/start.sh

script after you reboot or power up the server in order to load the interface.

The easier way of doing this is to add it to

/etc/rc.local

above the last “exit 0” line. That will ensure it is run at any boot.

Option 2: Crontab

If you’re running on a later version of Ubuntu, such as 18.04, rc.local is no longer available, but you can still start Snapt Aria via cronjob.

Edit the below with your preferred editor (vi, nano, etc)

/etc/crontab

And add the below into the file

@reboot root /usr/local/snapt/start.sh
