You don't provide much information, but if I had to guess, there was a runtime error and the script terminated.

I just quickly checked on the file and had multiple issues. To be honest I don't believe it is mature yet.

First, it shows an ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'daemon'. Okay, that's easy, just pip install python-daemon, nothing to concern.

After that's done, I reexecute the script and it goes to background, no error message, just like a successful daemonization would look like. However, trying to connect a client fails "Connection refused". The supposed logfile /var/log/rpycd.log doesn't exist either. Maybe this is the behaviour you observed.

Ok, I open up the source code and remove the with daemon.DaemonContext(...) lines to ensure that I will get all output that would be swallowed in the daemon.

Now, the next problem manifests: configparser.NoSectionError: No section: 'rpycd'. Apparently, the script doesn't look for the default .conf file in its own directory, so I change directory into bin and execute again.

Now I get PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/log/rpycd.log'. This one can be fixed by specifying a logfile path that is writeable by the current user in the config file.

After this, the script seems to work when executed in foreground. However, activating the DaemonContext again, it doesn't work. I add one line that is executed before start() and should just touch a file in /tmp. Nothing. This looks to me like a problem in the python-daemon module.

Feel free to investigate further, submit pull-requests, open issues elsewhere and so on. It might take me a while to get back to this.

Release rpyc 4.0.0
This release brings a few minor backward incompatibilities, so be sure to read
on before upgrading. However, fear not: the ones that are most likely relevant
to you have a relatively simple migration path.

Backward Incompatibilities
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

* ``classic.teleport_function`` now executes the function in the connection's
  namespace by default. To get the old behaviour, use
  ``teleport_function(conn, func, conn.modules[func.__module__].__dict__)``
  instead.

* Changed signature of ``Service.on_connect`` and ``on_disconnect``, adding
  the connection as argument.

* Changed signature of ``Service.__init__``, removing the connection argument

* no longer store connection as ``self._conn``. (allows services that serve
  multiple clients using the same service object, see `#198`_).

* ``SlaveService`` is now split into two asymetric classes: ``SlaveService``
  and ``MasterService``. The slave exposes functionality to the master but can
  not anymore access remote objects on the master (`#232`_, `#248`_).
  If you were previously using ``SlaveService``, you may experience problems
  when feeding the slave with netrefs to objects on the master. In this case, do
  any of the following:

  * use ``ClassicService`` (acts exactly like the old ``SlaveService``)
  * use ``SlaveService`` with a ``config`` that allows attribute access etc
  * use ``rpyc.utils.deliver`` to feed copies rather than netrefs to
    the slave

* ``RegistryServer.on_service_removed`` is once again called whenever a service
  instance is removed, making it symmetric to ``on_service_added`` (`#238`_)
  This reverts PR `#173`_ on issue `#172`_.

* Removed module ``rpyc.experimental.splitbrain``. It's too confusing and
  undocumented for me and I won't be developing it, so better remove it
  altogether. (It's still available in the ``splitbrain`` branch)

* Removed module ``rpyc.experimental.retunnel``. Seemingly unused anywhere, no
  documentation, no clue what this is about.

* ``bin/rpyc_classic.py`` will bind to ``127.0.0.1`` instead of ``0.0.0.0`` by
  default

* ``SlaveService`` no longer serves exposed attributes (i.e., it now uses
  ``allow_exposed_attrs=False``)

* Exposed attributes no longer hide plain attributes if one otherwise has the
  required permissions to access the plain attribute. (`#165`_)

What else is new
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

* teleported functions will now be defined by default in the globals dict

* Can now explicitly specify globals for teleported functions

* Can now use streams as context manager

* keep a hard reference to connection in netrefs, may fix some ``EOFError``
  issues, in particular on Jython related (`#237`_)

* handle synchronous and asynchronous requests uniformly

* fix deadlock with connections talking to each other multithreadedly (`#270`_)

* handle timeouts cumulatively

* fix possible performance bug in ``Win32PipeStream.poll`` (oversleeping)

* use readthedocs theme for documentation (`#269`_)

* actually time out sync requests (`#264`_)

* clarify documentation concerning exceptions in ``Connection.ping`` (`#265`_)

* fix ``__hash__`` for netrefs (`#267`_, `#268`_)

* rename ``async`` module to ``async_`` for py37 compatibility (`#253`_)

* fix ``deliver()`` from IronPython to CPython2 (`#251`_)

* fix brine string handling in py2 IronPython (`#251`_)

* add gevent_ Server. For now, this requires using ``gevent.monkey.patch_all()``
  before importing for rpyc. Client connections can already be made without
  further changes to rpyc, just using gevent's monkey patching. (`#146`_)

* add function ``rpyc.lib.spawn`` to spawn daemon threads

* fix several bugs in ``bin/rpycd.py`` that crashed this script on startup
  (`#231`_)

* fix problem with MongoDB, or more generally any remote objects that have a
  *catch-all* ``__getattr__`` (`#165`_)

* fix bug when copying remote numpy arrays (`#236`_)

* added ``rpyc.utils.helpers.classpartial`` to bind arguments to services (`#244`_)

* can now pass services optionally as instance or class (could only pass as
  class, `#244`_)

* The service is now charged with setting up the connection, doing so in
  ``Service._connect``. This allows using custom protocols by e.g. subclassing
  ``Connection``.  More discussions and related features in `#239`_-`#247`_.

* service can now easily override protocol handlers, by updating
  ``conn._HANDLERS`` in ``_connect`` or ``on_connect``. For example:
  ``conn._HANDLERS[HANDLE_GETATTR] = self._handle_getattr``.

* most protocol handlers (``Connection._handle_XXX``) now directly get the
  object rather than its ID as first argument. This makes overriding
  individual handlers feel much more high-level. And by the way it turns out
  that this fixes two long-standing issues (`#137`_, `#153`_)

* fix bug with proxying context managers (`#228`_)

* expose server classes from ``rpyc`` top level module

* fix logger issue on jython
