SDB:How to Create Your Own Init Script

Şuraya atla: kullan, ara


You want to create your own init script which will be started and stopped in certain runlevels.
You also want to control this script by means of:

rc<scriptname> {start|stop|status|reload|force-reload|try-restart|restart}


Copy the sample init script to your new script:

cp /etc/init.d/skeleton /etc/init.d/<scriptname>

Edit the file /etc/init.d/<scriptname> with a text editor of your choice and read and follow its instructions.

Now activate your script so that it can be run when the system boots:

insserv /etc/init.d/<scriptname>

Finally, create a link to /sbin:

ln -s /etc/init.d/<scriptname> /sbin/rc<scriptname>
