Etherpad installation on Debian 8

Hey Reddit,

unfortunately im not able to get etherpad-lite running. I followed the instructions on but this is what i got:

You shouldn't start Etherpad as root!

Please type 'Etherpad rocks my socks' or supply the '–root' argument if you still want to start it as root

Etherpad rocks my socks

bin/ 24: [: Etherpad rocks my socks: unexpected operator

Ensure that all dependencies are up to date… If this is the first time you have run Etherpad please be patient.
