I recently did a fresh install of an OS environment using the config guide for Ubuntu 14.04LTS. I am having an issue with the swift proxy server service failing to start. Any help would be appreciated. Below is my proxy-server.conf file:

bind_port = 8080
user = swift

pipeline = healthcheck cache authtoken keystoneauth ceilometer proxy-server

use = egg:swift#proxy
allow_account_management = true
account_autocreate = true

use = egg:swift#keystoneauth
operator_roles = Member,admin,swiftoperator

paste.filter_factory = keystoneclient.middleware.auth_token:filter_factory

# Delaying the auth decision is required to support token-less
# usage for anonymous referrers ('.r:*').
delay_auth_decision = true

# cache direc# auth_* settings refer to the Keystone server
auth_protocol = http
auth_host = controller
auth_port = 35357

# the service tenant and swift username and password created in Keystone
admin_tenant_name = service
admin_user = swift
admin_password = myPassword

use = egg:swift#memcache

use = egg:swift#catch_errors

use = egg:swift#healthcheck

use = egg:ceilometer#swift
tory for signing certificate
signing_dir = /home/swift/keystone-signing

:~$ sudo service swift-proxy restart stop: Unknown instance: start: Job failed to start
