I need to know more about service


I know how to manipulate buildin service that
I can use tools like ntsysv etc. but if I want to
start my own service at boot time How can I do?

The problem is when my server is down because
the power is off and wake up again when the power
is on (this server is HTTP service and I use XAMPP)
but my XAMPP is not start automatically.
I want to append my command"/usr/lampp/lampp start"
to any file that run at boot time. What file?

Thank you in advance.

if it's installed properly as a service you can use chkconfig

as root try:

chkconfig

it will list all the services installed if it lists XAMPP then this should do the trick:

chkconfig XAMPP on

probably the best file is /etc/rc.d/rc.local

It's the last file executed when you boot your machine.

What your system does when you boot in multiuser mode is start /etc/rc.d/rc.M
this script checks if some rc.* files (httpd,mysql,etc) have execute permission and if they do, they are executed.
Check the /etc/inittab and /etc/rc.d/rc.*(4,6,K,M,S) to get the whole picture of how things work.

This may work for most distros but slackware's boot script structure is unique and really simple.
There is no chkconfig command
