Following Cannot start Caddy as a systemd service :
I have the exact same issue. Caddy works just fine by launching it as a command line, but service fails to start and I have this errors in the syslog :
Aug 24 11:11:14 voiretmanger systemd: Network Service is not active. Aug 24 11:11:14 voiretmanger systemd: Dependency failed for Wait for Network to be Configured. Aug 24 11:11:14 voiretmanger systemd: systemd-networkd-wait-online.service: Job systemd-networkd-wait-online.service/start failed with result 'dependency'. Aug 24 11:11:14 voiretmanger systemd: Started Caddy HTTP/2 web server.
I’m using the official Caddy service and everything was working fine for several months, until I had to update my Caddyfile to add a site.
I tried to find the solution in the previous thread mentioned earlier, but I was not able to make it work. If I remove the
systemd-networkd-wait-online.service directive, I don’t have the network error in the syslog, but Caddy does not start either. It just fails silently, as far as I can tell. If there is log somewhere indicating what’s happening, I have not found it.
Here’s the output of a service status :
