I'm running into the same error with v22.214.171.1243, but I don't see any "PRO ONLY directives". Any idea on what's going on? My error log:

This problem seems to be due to how the server admin set up the VM that I'm installing shiny server into.
shiny-server --pidfile=/var/run/shiny-server.pid seems to work, so I'm planning on just using that.
