Editing Start up scripts question


I'm running RH EL4 x86_64 and have a question about editing the httpd startup script. We are running something called CartWheel ontop of Apache, but it uses SCGI for its cgi needs. Its easy enought starting the scgi server from the command line, but I want to have it start when the httpd script runs.

I edited httpd like so

".....
case "$1" in
start)
start
command="/usr/local/share/cartwheel/bin/canal-scgi-server >& /usr/local/share/cartwheel/scgi-errors.log &"
;;
stop)
.....
esac
exec $command
exit $RETVAL"

It works, the scgi-server starts, but for some reason beyond me, it will stop right there. The script wont end and let the rest of the start up sequence continue. I know it has something to do with the command, but I have no idea about it.

Help?
David

When you exec a command it replaces the current shell. Just remove the exec command and it should work as expected. Take a look at the exec command section of "man bash" if you want a full explanation.
