VITE node: dataDir already used by another process

  • Hi everybody,
    I got a problem with my vite full node...

    The vite service is running but gvite.log is telling me:

    Failed to prepare node, dataDir already used by another process

    The troubleshooting page is telling me that

    the DataDir has been occupied by another gvite process. Kill the process and try again.

    But if is run the command 'top | grep gvite' there is only one gvite process... I can't spot the problem also I didn't make any changes to the system... Only possibility is that the machine crashed and some kind of file-lock has been applied or not removed...

    Running on Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS

    Anybody experienced the same that can help?

    Thanks in advance!
