I rebooted the box where I have my Openresty installed, and when it came back, nginx had started, but openresty did not. All applications were 404 not found.
Systemctl status nginx shows

but Openresty does not have a Systemd service.
The machine is Ubuntu 0.04 and does Openresty is not listed a a service either

How can I make sure Openresty comes back with the box?

I found this library. It shows how to convert Json to an HTML table using LUA. 
It would solve all problems if somebody could port it to Openresty, since we can get Json from a SQL select statement, and using this library the table will be offered as HTMP within Openresty. I just don't know enough LUA and Openresty to do this:
If somebody can indicate how to do this with the tools we have already in Openresty.

sudo systemctl status openresty

or just
sudo systemctl status

to list all systemd services.
