I am trying to install RStudio server on my ubuntu server. The installation seems to be fine but when I run:
$ sudo rstudio-server verify-installation
It does not return anything. Then I tried running:
$ sudo rstudio-restart rsession: no process found
I have looked at some other posts with similar problems and it seems mostly it is recommended to disable AppArmor, but when I attempt to do this with the following commands I get these errors:
$ sudo ln -s /etc/apparmor.d/rstudio-server /etc/apparmor.d/disable/ ln: failed to create symbolic link '/etc/apparmor.d/disable/rstudio-server': File exists $ sudo apparmor_parser -R /etc/apparmor.d/rstudio-server File /etc/apparmor.d/rstudio-server not found, skipping...
It didn't appear as though I actually disabled apparmor but I reloaded AppArmor anyway like this:
$ sudo invoke-rc.d apparmor reload
After reloading AppArmor I tried to run the verify-installation command again and get the following output:
$ sudo rstudio-server verify-installation 26 Mar 2018 16:52:16 [rserver] ERROR system error 2 (No such file or directory) [path=/var/lib/rstudio-server/secure-cookie-key]; OCCURRED AT: rstudio::core::Error rstudio::server::key_file::readSecureKeyFile(const string&, std::string*) /home/ubuntu/rstudio/src/cpp/server/ServerSecureKeyFile.cpp:55; LOGGED FROM: int main(int, char* const*) /home/ubuntu/rstudio/src/cpp/server/ServerMain.cpp:435
I then tried looking at posts about this type of problem and I came across one that said:
Can you check the permissions on that
/var/lib/rstudio-server directory and make sure its readable (and see if there is a secure-cookie-key file in it)?
The /var/lib/rstudio-server directory is owned buy root and has 755 permissions. I then checked the contents of the directory and this is what I have:
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Feb 16 14:38 body drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Feb 16 14:38 conf drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Feb 16 14:38 proxy -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 63544178 Mar 12 11:37 rstudio-server-1.1.442-amd64.deb -rw------- 1 root root 0 Mar 26 09:57 secure-cookie-key
I'm really at a loss now as to what my problem is. Can anyone shine some light on this situation?
