I've been fighting with this problem for more than 1 hour and I have no idea what's going on.


$ sudo apt-get install supervisor
Version: 3.0a8-1.1+deb7u1
$ sudo update-rc.d supervisor defaults
$ reboot

$ sudo service supervisor status
supervisord is  not running.
pid and socket are not created.

I manually try sudo service supervisor start/stop/restart and everything works...

here is the default init script. Also, I simply run sudo grep -ri 'supervisor' in /var/log and can't find anything startup error.


OMG, I just now realize that this may be because of the environment: Vagrant.

So, I remove my custom supervisor conf file which is calling a program in vagrant mounted filesystem.

reboot and boom! it works!

and the Vagrant solution is

config.vm.provision "shell", inline: "service supervisor restart", run: "always"
