I'm trying to install daemontools, http://cr.yp.to/daemontools/install.html, but getting the following error message when I do package/install

Linking ./src/* into ./compile... Compiling everything in ./compile... make: Nothing to be done for `default'. Copying commands into ./command... Creating symlink daemontools -> daemontools-0.76... Making command links in /command... mkdir: cannot create directory '/command': Permission denied

Is there anyway I can allow the directory access? Thanks.

You would not be able to create a directory at / (Making command links in /command) as your user does not have access or permission. We do not allow users to have root or sudo access, however you can still install software from source.

Would I be able to have the access if I upgrade to cloud hosting? Currently I'm on shared hosting. Or can you install it for me? Basically I'm looking for a process manager which can be managed from CLI, is there any you could suggest? And besides Supervisor & Circus? http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/240455/process-management-add-daemon-process-from-cli

We do not provide root access on any server or service. We do not install custom packages on any server or service. Even on a cloud server you would have to build it from source and execute it within user-space. Supervisor is the queue I would suggest as it has the most use and is known to be stable.
