ease of use question


A few things, I want to make sure that on every boot the following happen:

KDE Starts

/usr/local/bin/mysqld_safe --user=root & is run

httpd and apache start

any thoughts for automating these processes?


thanks


other question, now that I've got my webserver up and running, how do I create a situation to where I can ftp in from a remote box (I will be the only ftp user, but wish to have this to be able to work from home)

using pcbsd lateszt version

1/ Install kdm, the display manager. It should be started, it should set this up, in /etc/init.d/kdm.

2/ If you start them and then log out of KDE without closing them kdm will start them the next time it starts KDE????

2a/ Shove command in .bashrc or a file sourced from there???? Suspect you should get the login shell to run it, don't know how.

Vis ftp just start an ftp daemon, e.g. pftpd????????

I'm not sure how *BSD does it, but on Linux programs are started at boot by placing them in the appropriate run level.

As for FTP access for your webserver, you need to be running an FTP server.

May not be the best way, but this is what I did:
Download "xampp" and un tar it into /opt/lampp
This installs apache, php, proftp and mysql
Then edit /etc/rc.local to include "/opt/lampp/lampp start"
This will start Apache web server and proftpd
