Angry Adding service in /etc/init.d


I am using SUSE 10.1 and am having a bit of problem trying to get Apache 2.2.4 to load upon startup. This is not the apache that comes with the distro but the source download from Apaches' website.

I have tried by running the httpd -k command in /etc/init.d/boot.local, xinetd and system services but all of them try to load before the network has loaded which results in apache not being able to start because it is unable to bind to an ip address.

If I add apache to xinetd at runlevel 5 it adds the service at S01 prefix at which point I rename it to S07 prefix which is after the network is loaded but this does not change the order as shown in the boot.msg file.

How do I get apache to start up with the operating system correctly. I can manually start apache successfully using either "httpd -k" or "apachectl start".

I've been trying for days to get this up and running and numberous amount of searching on the net but no go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Adding service in /etc/init.d

Thank you so much for that. That has worked brilliantly.

It would be interesting to find out why the service was added before networking and why when it was moved down the list to S07 that it still ran as if it were in S01...

Anyways, thanks again... much appreciated...
