Subject [jira] [Commented] (DAEMON-264) Change current working directory to / when daemonising
Date Thu, 08 Nov 2012 15:43:12 GMT


Nikola Petrov commented on DAEMON-264:


Please if you change this in the next release by default, consider adding an option to specify
the current working directory. We are currently using jsvc for our java processes and they
make some assumptions about the current directory structure(for example configs file are taken
from relative paths). This is currently easy to fix by cd to the right directory but it won't
be if you change it by default.

Best, Nikola

> It's good practice for daemons to change their current working directory to / as this
ensures they don't prevent file systems being mounted/unmounted by having a cwd wherever their
controlling terminal was when it spawned them.
> It would be great if jsvc could chdir to / when detatching from its controlling terminal.
