Whoops!!! Looks like there's an error in the wiki version!
Just so anyone having this issue hopefully finds this thread I'll
explain it in full again... (in other words, this is not directed at
There are many options for how to run mythbackend with SystemD but
one decision you
make is if you're going to run:
If you use Type=simple (which is my recommendation) then you *CANNOT*
use the "--daemon" option because SystemD is not expecting the daemon
If you use Type=forking then you *MUST* use the "--daemon" option as
well as specify a PID file, "--pidfile" in ExecStart *AND* you must
set the PIDFile= systemd option so it knows where to find the PID
Someone please fix the wiki!
