    Teamspeak server is running as root...

    Hello!
    I've installed ts3 server on my Ubuntu server but for some reason the service is running as root...
    I made a user, called teamspeak, installed teamspeak in the users /home.
    However when I do:
    service teamspeak start
    and then check with top, root is running that service, why?
    Note that I have done chown -R teamspeak:teamspeak /home/teamspeak

    how do you start the teamspeak server?
    Do you have a file called teamspeak located in /etc/init.d ? if yes, can you share it with us?

    I stat it with:
    Code:
    sudo service teamspeak start
    Sure, here is the file:
    Code:

    cd "${BINARYPATH}"
    LIBRARYPATH="$(pwd)"
    BINARYNAME="ts3server"
    
    case "$1" in
            start)
                    if [ -e ts3server.pid ]; then
                            if ( kill -0 $(cat ts3server.pid) 2> /dev/null ); then
                                    echo "The server is already running, try restart or stop"
                                    exit 1

    EDIT (SOLVED):
    Fixed it by reinstalling and using the way of setting up the service mentioned on this site:

    see the guide by ANR Daemon, or use this simple script:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    ### BEGIN INIT INFO
    # Provides: 		Teamspeak 3 Server
    # Required-Start: 	$local_fs $network
    # Required-Stop:	$local_fs $network
    # Default-Start: 	2 3 4 5
    # Default-Stop: 	0 1 6
    # Description: 		Teamspeak 3 Server
    ### END INIT INFO
     
    
    
    USER="PUT_TEAMSPEAK_USER_HERE"
    DIR="/PATH/TO/TEAMSPEAK/FOLDER"
     
    ###### Teamspeak 3 server start/stop script ######
     
    case "$1" in
    start)
    su $USER -c "${DIR}/ts3server_startscript.sh start"
    ;;
    stop)
    su $USER -c "${DIR}/ts3server_startscript.sh stop"
    ;;
    restart)
    su $USER -c "${DIR}/ts3server_startscript.sh restart"
    ;;
    status)
    su $USER -c "${DIR}/ts3server_startscript.sh status"
    ;;
    *)
    echo "Usage: {start|stop|restart|status}" >&2
    exit 1
    ;;
    esac
    exit 0
    be sure you are in "/etc/init.d/"
    Code:
    chmod +x teamspeak
    Code:
    sudo update-rc.d teamspeak defaults
