Owserver Failed to start Access denied

Hi, I am mooveing from 1.x to 2. I have just installed Openhab with hassle-free setup. I also installed owfs sudo apt-get install owfs. Configuration is set, but when is try to start the service I get acces denied error.

openhabian@openHABianPi:/etc/init.d $ service owserver start
Failed to start owserver.service: Access denied

Permission looks good:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2054 Nov 14 2014 owftpd
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2051 Nov 14 2014 owhttpd
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1988 Nov 14 2014 owserver

Do you have any idea why I can’t start service?

Thank you,

start with sudo

sudo service owserver start

If I use sudo it asks for my password but nothing happen. How can I check whether owserver runs or not? I am trying to start owhttpd as well, but my browser doeasn’t show anything on the port :2121. I guess it doesn’t start.

I’m not familiar with ows, but there should be log files, commonly in /var/log

you could also check for running processes

ps -ef|grep ows

can anyone help me how to start owserver and owhttpd on startup?
