Subject [users@httpd] startup scripts
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2003 15:50:55 GMT
i'm using suse linux 8.0 and have a question about starting up apache.  my
distro came with version 1.3.27, but i manually compiled and installed
version 2.0.44.  i had them both running simultaneously for a while with
2.0.44 bound to port 8080, but i have since stopped running 1.3.27 and
restarted 2.0.44. bound to port 80.

without thinking about it, i moved /etc/init.d/apache to
/etc/init.d/apache.old and removed the S and K symlinks in rc3.d and rc5.d.

i know linux is never supposed to crash and that the servers are supposed to
run for years without interruption, but in the unlikely event that the
machine has to be booted or anything...can i just create a symlink using
"ln -s /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl /etc/init.d/apache"?  (they're on
the same file system, so "-s" won't be a problem -- but for the sake of
scalability, should i omit it?  or should i not link to apachectl at all?)

and when creating the symlinks in rc[3|5].d, what services should be started
and killed before apache?  the sever is running a little bit of everything
(e.g. ssh, postfix, mysql, named, pro-ftp, etc.).
