Subject Re: Tomcat 4 as a service under Linux
Date Fri, 17 Aug 2001 02:11:43 GMT
The /etc/rc.d/init.d scripts look complex, but there's really one very
simple line to them:

# chkconfig: 345 85 15

its the comment at the top of them all.  to get tomcat to start
automatically, try something like (note I haven't done this myself, so its
not guarenteed to work - but do ask):
1. copy to /etc/rc.d/init.d/tomcat
2. edit the new tomcat script so that tomcat runs under the appropriate
user (as the /etc/rc.d scripts are called by root (su <user> -c "cmd")
3. at the top of the file add a comment like the one above.  the syntax of
the comment is:
   # chkconfig: <runlevels> <startorder> <stoporder>
you'll need it to start before apache, and start after... try
   # chkconfig: 345 84 16
4. run the command "chkconfig --add tomcat"
5. run the command "chkconfig --level 345 tomcat on"

that should have tomcat start automatically in runlevels 3 4 and 5.

the script that starts apache at boot time and looks pretty confusing. Is there any way to
add tomcat to that script to start before apache?
