Description Dan Langille freebsd_committer 2021-08-27 15:12:47 UTC
For demonstration, I added these lines to a fresh install of mosquitto-2.0.10_1 on FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE-p4.

They are placed just before the 'run_rc_command' line in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mosquitto :

echo mosquitto_enable=$mosquitto_enable
echo mosquitto_config=$mosquitto_config
echo mosquitto_user=$mosquitto_user
echo mosquitto_pidfile=$mosquitto_pidfile
echo pidfile=$pidfile

I am running with this configuration:

$ grep mosq /etc/rc.conf

$ sudo service mosquitto start
Starting mosquitto.

NOTE how pidfile has the wrong value but mosquitto_pidfile does.

Both files are created, but only one is correct.

$ sudo ls -l /var/run/mosquitto/mosquitto.pid /var/run/mosquitto.pid
-rw-r--r--  1 mosquitto  wheel      0 Aug 27 15:10 /var/run/mosquitto.pid
-rw-r--r--  1 mosquitto  mosquitto  5 Aug 27 15:10 /var/run/mosquitto/mosquitto.pid
Clearly, the value for mosquitto_pidfile is not being picked up from /etc/rc.conf

I'm submitting this now and may be able to work on finding a solution soon.
Comment 1 Dan Langille freebsd_committer 2021-08-27 16:48:20 UTC
The fix is to move "load_rc_config $name" before the variable assignments.

Credit to jrm via IRC and eborisch via Twitter for this.

Created attachment 227488 [details]
fixes assignment of /etc/rc.conf variables

Credit to jrm for this script.  Tested on my hosts.

NOTE: when setting mosquitto_pidfile in /etc/rc.conf, you must also set pid_file (note the underscore) to the same value within the mosquitto configuration file.

Joe: I take it we have maintainer approval to proceed? Just to be explicit.  Thank you.

    net/mosquitto: update rc.d script to fix mosquitto_pidfile override

    The default variables were being set before load_rc_config was invoked.

    jrm@FreeBSD.org did most of this work and all credit goes to him.
    I only found the problem. He helped tremendously.
