Unix runlevel scripts: Finally the first character makes sense!

Posted 05-29-2010 at 04:12 PM by bittner (Notes on Linux)

You probably know Unix runlevel scripts. They start with an S or a K, and they are typically located at /etc/rcX.d/ with X being the runlevel (0-6) the script is supposed to run at. For example:
~$ ls -l /etc/rc5.d/*cups
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 2009-12-31 16:35 /etc/rc5.d/S50cups -> ../init.d/cups
To be precise those S- and K- files are typically symbolic links to scripts that reside in /etc/init.d/, and from my experience I felt they work as follows:

The whole point of this tutorial is to help with usability, and on that subject one of the things i find slightly lacking in webmin is the mysql administration. Albeit use able its not all that refined. The fix I find for this is installing phpmyadmin . Its pretty useful for user administration and has a hell of a web interface. Its also really easy to install.

SSH in to the system , as at this point theres no use for a monitor since webmin can take care of just about anything you need...
