Re: [mosquitto-dev] Ubuntu 14.04 doesn't find mosquitto daemon

sudo service mosquitto stop
sudo service mosquitto start
sudo service mosquitto restart
sudo service mosquitto status

Work fine in Ubuntu Server 14.04, 14.04.1 and 14.04.02 (I use them very often) I've not tried in Ubuntu Desktop, but there is not problem at all in Ubuntu Server.

Are you getting errors?

i think there is a problem with the init system of ubuntu and the mosquitto broker, because there is no way of stopping / starting the client without killing the daemon, although both a SysV init script and an upstart script seem to be provided. when looking at the sysV init script (/etc/init.d/mosquitto), the function "init_is_upstart" evaluates to true, so the script does actually nothing, but upstart initctl tool can't find mosquitto either ("initctl list" doesn't list it). when i kill mosquitto, it gets respawned immediately, so there is no way of stopping it in a controlled way.

any help or clarification on this topic is highly appreciated, thanks in advance!
