  • SC's Apache to automatically start up at boot time?


    When installing SC8 (full linux) there is a note in the installation instructions that, after a server reboot, you will need to manually start apache using:

    "sudo /opt/NetMake/v8/components/apache/sc_apache start"

    ... and sure enough, whenever I reboot the server (Ubuntu), the SC dev environment is unavailable until I enter the above command. The question is, does anyone know how this apache start can be automated? I'm sure this wasn't an issue in SC7 - so how or where can I get the above command run automatically at boot time?

      Thanks Giu - helped to point me in the right direction.

      Mine's Ubuntu, not Debian, so needed to use rc.local, and put the command (without sudo) in there.

      #!/bin/sh -e
      # rc.local
      # This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
      # Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
      # value on error.
      # In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
      # bits.
      # By default this script does nothing.
      #Start up SC8 Apapche on re-boot
      /opt/NetMake/v8/components/apache/sc_apache start
      exit 0
      Worked a treat - thanks!
