Hello,

If you tell us what distro and version you are using then we might be able to give you the correct commands without having to list all possibilities.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello,

There are several ways. The easiest one is to include the startup line for your script in /etc/rc.d/rc.local. In doing that your script will start after all the other init scripts. That way you can avoid the second, more complicated way which is to create a startup script for your daemon, place that in /etc/init.d/ and add it to the appropriate run levels using the chkconfig command.

Kind regards,

Eric
