    Debian 8.1 startup script issues

    Hello everyone, I'm currently using this startup script and occasionally it works fine but for majority of the time when I launch my server through it, it will say "server is already running" when it's not. Occasionally when it did that, I managed to find out that some mods were having issues which did not allow the server to start. After fixing the issues, the startup script worked again. This time its different. Firstly I tried running the script with only exile mod just to be sure that it's not an issue in the mods. It would still say "server is already running" which means that it's not a mod issue. Also I always check if it actually starts the server by doing the top command. Unfortunately, I don't have any processes running, yet it repeats "server is already running". It will not make any logs since the server is not actually up. As soon as I go to my a3 root folder and launch it with the parameters, the server loads up with all of the mods with no errors. I would appreciate a working solution to this. Here is the script that I use: #!/bin/bash ### BEGIN INIT INFO # Provides: exile # Required-Start: $remote_fs $network # Required-Stop: $remote_fs $network # Should-Start: mysql # Should-Stop: mysql # Default-Start: 2 3 4 5 # Default-Stop: 0 1 6 # Description: ArmA 3 Exile init.d Script by Flodding ### END INIT INFO #======================================================================= #======== CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS ======== #======== MUST BE EDITED MANUALLY TO FIT YOUR SYSTEM PARAMETERS ======== #======================================================================= USERNAME="pirkka" # This user *MUST* exist on the system.
