[Nut-upsuser] Data Stale issue

Hi Stuart,

Thank you for your message. I'm not entirely sure which distro I'm using but the RPi is running Debian 9 (Stretch). I also have the most up-to-date version of NUT. I have no idea if that helps?

That sounds like a good solution with the systemctl command... I'll look into that.

It's strange that I don't get any errors when I run the nut-server status command but for some reason I don't get the e-mails coming through. Maybe I've forgotten to start some service in the background?

Many thanks

Those are issues with understanding your distro.  For the latter, if
you are using systemd, and your systemd service is called
nut-server.service (as it is in Fedora), you would enable it at boot
with "systemctl enable nut-server".  Systemd automatically starts
prerequistites first, so on Fedora at least, starting nut-server first
starts nut-driver.  You probably also need to start nut-monitor, as
that is the usual place you would configure sending notifications.

Sorry, I don't have details on Debian.
