[SOLVED]/etc/rc.restart_webgui not running except root



  • Hi,

    ACME package failed to restart my webgui after renewed the certificate. I SSH into the pfsense to restart webgui manually but failed, but it works only if I login as root. ACME package update to the latest version.

    Any idea why the package or admin privilege account fail to execute the rc.restart_webgui script?








  • Hi,

    Login as root ?
    I'm always using the 'admin' user.

    ACME, when renewing, runs as superuser also, it writes out cert and has to restart  servcices.

    ACME restarts services  fine for me.

    This works fine in the ACME package:

    Did you do something different?

    Also, you can use the sudo package to grant other users rights to do things. It wouldn't be necessary for ACME, but for your own user it could help you out.

    I think I found the problem. Silly me. I entered the command as /etc**.rc.restart_webgui instead of /etc/**rc.restart_webgui

    I only realize it after I look into the screenshot.
