Q. I've got some troubles starting an application with tarantoolctl. I have a simple test.lua script that looks like this:

box.cfg{} local function handler(self) return self:render{ json = } end local httpd = require('http.server') local server ='', 8080) server:route({ path = '/' }, handler) server:start()

http.server is a Tarantool module for an HTTP client/server (

When I run it with tarantool test.lua, everything is OK and HTTP works. But when I put this file into /etc/tarantool/instances.enabled and then run sudo tarantoolctl start test, I get this error:

Start failed: /etc/tarantool/instances.enabled/test.lua:7: module 'http.server' not found: no field package.preload['http.server'] no file './http/server.lua' no file './http/server/init.lua' no file '/home/myuser/.luarocks/share/lua/5.1/http/server.lua' no file '/home/myuser/.luarocks/share/lua/5.1/http/server/init.lua' no file '/home/myuser/.luarocks/share/lua/http/server.lua' no file '/home/myuser/.luarocks/share/lua/http/server/init.lua' no file '/usr/local/share/tarantool/http/server.lua' no file '/usr/local/share/tarantool/http/server/init.lua' no file '/usr/share/tarantool/http/server.lua' no file '/usr/share/tarantool/http/server/init.lua' ………………………………………………….

I checked if the file /home/myuser/.luarocks/share/lua/5.1/http/server.lua exists - and it does (2016)

A. /home/myuser/.luarocks does exist but is inaccessible to the tarantool user. You need to install the LuaRock globally for it to be available to the tarantool user.
