Thread: Startup scripts question

    Startup scripts question

    This is a really simple question, but I ask because I don't want to screw anything up (which I've done before)

    I lease a dedicated server running Red Hat 7.2. A while back I installed a newer version of Apache, but since it's in a different location than the default machine config, Apache no longer starts during boot up. I have to do it manually.

    The command I use is:
    /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl startssl

    What is the correct file I need to edit to get it to start during boot, and is there a special syntax I need to follow? Thanks.

    it would be in /etc/init.d and would be called www or apache, i can't remember whic exactly - anyway - when you edit it it should be failr ly obvious as to what you need to fix.

    please let us know if you have issues.

    it's called /etc/init.d/httpd
    Change the apachectl, moduledir and httpd variable in it to point where your new version is located.. And everything should be fine.
