lsyncd error: Illegal instruction
You guys are awesome, so I hope that you can help me with this one too.

My problem today is with lsync. Here's the tutorial that I was following:

And here's the error that I ran into after trying to start the service:
Starting lsyncd: /bin/bash: line 1: 23399 Illegal instruction /usr/local/bin/lsyncd -pidfile /var/run/ /etc/lsyncd.lua [FAILED]

What I've found is that the files referenced in the file '/etc/init.d/lsyncd' don't exist after I do the 'make install' command.


I'm not sure if I'm supposed to create them, or if they're supposed to be installed, but either way, they aren't referenced in the instructions other than in that file. Since' I keep getting that error message, I can't troubleshoot any further. So here I am :)

Does anyone know of this particular problem, and/or another tutorial that might explain some of it? I'm running CentOS 6.4.

incidentally, those files may just be made after the program starts, so I'm not so sure that it's the problem that they're not on the system. They seem like nothing more than reference files. I'm stumpped!

Here's the fix I found... just FYI:
