running scripts on startup
I've spent the last week setting up a computer on Redhat 8, with some difficulty considering my newness to the Linux world. Anyway, I've been able to get my alpha wireless driver to work, and I successfully set up a web server using Apache 2. Problem is, when I restart the computer, I have to go through a number of steps manually just to return my computer to the condition it was last in. I have to run a script for the driver and I have to run apachect1 to start the webserver.
Upon advice from someone who was helping me with the wireless nic, I added the path for the driver script to the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file. This did not work. I can't really say much more than that, since I don't know how to access the relevant logs if there are any.
Can anyone help me understand how to run scripts on startup?
