Supervisor Configuration

Installing Supervisor

Supervisor is a process monitor for the Linux operating system, and will automatically restart your queue:work process if it fails. To install Supervisor on Ubuntu, you may use the following command:

sudo apt-get install supervisor

If configuring Supervisor yourself sounds overwhelming, consider using Laravel Forge, which will automatically install and configure Supervisor for your Laravel projects.

Configuring Horizon

Supervisor configuration files are typically stored in the /etc/supervisor/conf.d directory. Within this directory, you may create any number of configuration files that instruct supervisor how your processes should be monitored. For example, let's create a horizon.conf file that starts and monitors a horizon process:

command=php /var/www/html/cryptoexchange/artisan horizon

Replace ​cryptoexchange ​to your project directory name. If your server does not have root user, then change the user as well. Make sure /var/log/horizon.log the file is created and has write permission

Starting Supervisor

Once the configuration file has been created, you may update the Supervisor configuration and start the processes using the following commands:

sudo supervisorctl reread
sudo supervisorctl update
sudo supervisorctl start horizon

You need to run the following command to check if your supervisor is running successfully.

sudo supervisorctl status
