Hello, @vladislavklopota

On top of @Gavin’s suggestion, can you please share the output of the following command:

ls -lAh /opt/mattermost
ls -lAh /opt/mattermost/bin

Also, please share the content of your mattermost.service. Depending on where you set it up, it should be in /lib/systemd/system/mattermost.service in general.

cat /lib/systemd/system/mattermost.service

Let us know how it goes for you.
