Init script concern

I have configured a startup(init) script on my linux machine.
Does it is mandatory to give execute permission for this script .I cannot afford to restart my
machine as its a production machine.

Just want to confirm from you guys, execute permission is needed for init script to work

As far as I know - yes. do chmod +x to the init script.
