Hi,

DietPi disables services for all software available in DietPi-Software, this is to allow DietPi better control of service starting order. DietPi will automatically start all those services if they are installed, during boot.

You can run the following to check which services DietPi will automatically run during boot:

Code: Select all

dietpi-services restart
If the services are still not running, please paste results of their status (do for proftpd and the other aswell):

Code: Select all

systemctl status apache2 -l
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.

Hi,

Thanks for the info.
Looks like something is preventing dietpi-services from running during boot. Its launched by rc.local. Although you've uninstalled desktop+vnc, its worth taking a look.
Could you paste results of the following please:

Code: Select all

cat /etc/rc.local
systemctl status rc.local -l
We have another report of VNC breaking Kodi, so i've added this to and existing git ticket: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/454 I'll try to replicate your installation and test.

I'd like to check other system settings and services.
If you could send a bug report, i'd be grateful:
