start up script(part 2)


Hi,

I added a script to /etc/init.d/local and made it run at boot using:
Code:
update-rc.d local defaults 80
Is there any way for me to make it NOT run when the server is rebooted/halted?

Please advise.

The classic way to handle this is to add a case statement, since these
scripts are called with a parameter such as start and stop.

case "$1" in
start)
echo Starting $0...
;;
stop)
echo "Doing nothing" > /dev/null
;;
*)
echo "Only start and stop options are supported for $0" >&2
;;
esac
