Hi all, I'm in a bit of bind and am seeking help!
I really don't know much about linux, and this is beyond my scope. I just got a virtual Linux server, and need a program to start up automatically during reboot. The program is a Ventrilo server. The file is Vent/ventsrv/ventrilo_srv
I have been told there are 3 ways to make this startup automatically. A script, a cron job, or chkconfig. My host is recommending either a cron job or chkconfig.
The only thing I've been able to try:
In the first SSH window, I would start up ventrilo_srv. In a 2nd SSH window, I would login as root in order to be able to use the chkconfig --list command, but ventilo_srv is not listed.
The instructions I've found online seem simple enough. I figured the command line would be as simple as:
But I can't find a detailed step by step guide to get out of the cron editor and have it saved. Help on the best way to do this would be greatly appreciated.
