Is anyone here using Monit on mythbuntu to monitor and restart your mythbox's? (Mysql and mythbackend) The functionallity of it seems great but my issue is with permissions I think. Maybe someone can help me sort this. 

I've edited /etc/sudoers appropriatly to allow the group mythtv to execute /etc/init.d/mysqld and /etc/init.d/mythtv-backend.  

/etc/monit/monitrc can't be executed by anyone other than the OWNER I've tried to give ownership to "user",  root and mythtv.

Whenever I open the web interface for monit and attempt to restart the backend or mysql I get a permission denied in the logs. 

Has anyone seen this before or am I sounding greek? 

Everytime I run
