[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Stopping ASpace: "Couldn't find a running instance to stop"

Hi folks,

I have just installed a new test instance of ASpace on a server that's
never run ASpace before. It's only got this one instance of ASpace. It's
pointing to a copy of our production database.

It's running beautifully. The admin UI is running at port 8080, public UI
at port 8081. All the data is there.

Weird thing, I can't seem to shut ASpace down.

Here's what an attempt looks like:

# cd /path/to/archivesspace
# sudo ./archivesspace.sh stop

ArchivesSpace base directory: /path/to/archivesspace
Couldn't find a running instance to stop

This is definitely where ArchivesSpace is running, because I just installed
it there yesterday.

Our production instance stops and starts perfectly, a mirror of that server
stops and starts perfectly, but the fresh install fails to stop.

Any thoughts on what I'm missing?
