I am trying to use UNiTE4 in single site restoration mode. I got it to work in Unite 3 with the following command
php /usr/share/nginx/html/unite/restore-site.php /usr/share/nginx/html/unite/inbox/joomla.xml


In UNiTE4 (using the same directory structure and xml file as per UNiTE3) I used the following command
php /usr/share/nginx/html/unite/unite.phar /usr/share/nginx/html/unite/inbox/joomla.xml


I got the following message and then nothing more-
Akeeba UNiTE 4.0.0 (2018-01-25)

There were no error messages and no log files created.
How can I debug this? Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

In both instances I was using ubuntu16.04 server with PHP 7.0.22-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 (cli) ( NTS ).

Please note, I've read ticket https://www.akeebabackup.com/support/desktop-utilities/Ticket/29094-unite-4-0-setup-how-to.html
and I've read the documentation.

EDIT: Here is the start of my xml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<unite scripting="02_angie">
  <siteInfo>
    <package>/usr/share/nginx/html/unite/inbox/backup.jpa</package>
    <deletePackage>0</deletePackage>

backup.jpa was created using Akeeba Backup Professional 6.0.0.b1

Hello,

you can enable the verbose output by adding the parameter --verbose to the command.
If you do that, what's the output of the script?

Thank you very much for your time.
I was able to find and fix the issue. Can you please download the latest dev version of UNiTE and try again?
If you confirm everything is working fine, I'll release a new version later in the day.

I've checked version rev431825B and it allowed me to restore the website using
 php /usr/share/nginx/html/unite/unite.phar /usr/share/nginx/html/unite/inbox/joomla.xml

At first I didn't think it worked as there was no message to say as such, but anyway it worked a treat. Thanks a lot!
