Kinda shocked about supervisor. I get this error

unix:///var/run/supervisor.sock no such file

What is so shocking is the file is there! I am running on ubuntu on ec2. I tired to chmod to 0777 as well.

logfile=/var/log/supervisord.log ; (main log file;default $CWD/supervisord.log)
logfile_maxbytes=50MB       ; (max main logfile bytes b4 rotation;default 50MB)
logfile_backups=10          ; (num of main logfile rotation backups;default 10)
loglevel=debug               ; (log level;default info; others: debug,warn,trace)
pidfile=/var/run/supervisord.pid ; (supervisord pidfile;default supervisord.pid)
nodaemon=false              ; (start in foreground if true;default false)
minfds=1024                 ; (min. avail startup file descriptors;default 1024)
minprocs=200                ; (min. avail process descriptors;default 200)


files = *.supervisor

What raises this error? If it is supervisorctl, is supervisord already running? –  sr_ Jan 22 '13 at 8:46
Did you ever get a resolution to this? I'm having a similar problem where supervisord won't start (in my case, /var/run/supervisor.sock is never created). –  outis nihil Aug 7 '14 at 13:45
