Beginning today, Forge will no longer install beanstalkd on new servers.
We have noted an increase in provisioning failures due to the beanstalkd service failing. In addition, beanstalkd usage among Laravel users has declined sharply with the introduction of more robust tools like Laravel Horizon.
However, if you would like to manually install beanstalkd, you may still install it manually using the following Bash script:
apt-get install -y --force-yes beanstalkdsed -i "s/BEANSTALKD_LISTEN_ADDR.*/BEANSTALKD_LISTEN_ADDR=0.0.0.0/" /etc/default/beanstalkdif grep START= /etc/default/beanstalkd; then sed -i "s/#START=yes/START=yes/" /etc/default/beanstalkdelse echo "START=yes" >> /etc/default/beanstalkdfiservice beanstalkd startsleep 5service beanstalkd restartsystemctl enable beanstalkd
Here’s what we've been up to recently.
