Any way to startup daemon automatically?


Dear all,

I wish to startup two antivirus daemons "clamd" and "clamdscan" automatically. My clamav is tarball which does not provide startup script. IS there any other way that I can startup the daemon besides writing up script? I am quite new in linux, have no idea of writing script.

thanks in advance

The /etc/rc.local is the last initialization script to run at boot. Edit the file and add a line including the full path to the file like

/path_to_daemon/daemon_name

You need to be logged in as root to edit files in the /etc/ directory.
