    How to find if a service is running or why didn't a service start?

    That depends on which Operating System is used.
    If it is somewhat recent GNU/Linux, I would first use
    systemctl --state=failed
    If you are interested in a particular service,
    systemctl status nameofservice
    shows info on that service, and if it is not running should show info on finding more information.
    ahrasis and SLH like this.
