Server :: Creating An Initscript That Chkconfig Identifies?

Aug 31, 2010

I'm on a CentOS server and for the past hours I have been trying to unsuccessfully make a script that will start a binary and keep it running if anything goes wrong with it.

This is what I have:

# counter daemon
# chkconfig: 345 20 80
# desc: counter daemon


Does anyone know how I can make the script start my application?

Software :: Email Settings: Which Config File Identifies The Smtp Server

Dec 9, 2010

I have a recent install of Fedora14, and wanted to have outbound email sent to a smtp server elsewhere on the local network. I found the System->Preferences->Email Settings app and created a mail account with an smtp server. Now I am able to use mailx, mutt, and sendmail -- all send email correctly to the external server.

But I don't like being reliant on the GUI apps and wanted to know how this was done -- what system config files were affected. Assuming that my "" server should show up somewhere, I grepped /home, /etc, and /var, but can't find it anywhere. On a whim I went into Evolution, deleted the mail account, and rebooted, but email STILL works. Where is this configured?

Server :: Chkconfig Runs Script With Different PATH Values?

Oct 7, 2010

I have a question regarding the user that chkconfig runs as. My chkconfig script calls some other scripts to start up a tomcat instance. But the secondary scripts use %JAVA_HOME and for some reason the user it's running under doesn't have that defined. I can call the scripts directly as the root or as another user and it works properly. But I added an echo in the script and when chkconfig calls the script it has a much smaller $PATH and no $JAVA_HOME.

CentOS 5 :: Chkconfig Vs. Update-rc.d?

Feb 24, 2010

I'm trying to bring up a server on CentOS5 -- working from Debian instructions.

I've just installed postgres and an init.d script postgres8-2.4. My Debian instructions next tell me to execute:

update-rc.d postgresql-8.4 defaults

...which doesn't work on CentOS.

Searching Google, I see that I should use chkconfig instead. But it doesn't work either. My guess is that I to add code to the init.d file, but what?

General :: Create A Service Using Chkconfig In CentOS?

May 16, 2011

I want to be able to create a service so that the bash script will run every time the server boots up.

I am running CentOS 5.

I have been reading about chkconfig and creating a file in /etc/init.d for chkconfig to handle but I cannot seem to get it to work whenever I 'chkconfig servicename on' and then 'service servicename start'

When I do chkconfig --list my service is listed there.

Can someone provide me with a sample of the file I need to create in /etc/init.d and how to get everything running?

General :: Web Server - Creating A PHP Application

Oct 4, 2010

Im creating a PHP application for my company. The application its going to be used by around 500 people in the network. I've always used Windows Server for my PHP applications, but I want to start using linux. I've heard its faster and more secure.

I want to knwo, what type of computer should I use? Is does linux work better on Intel Xeon or AMD? I need the application to work fast.

Am I going to have any problems with incompatibility if I get a Dell server?

I've used Ubuntu, just to check it out, but I've heard Centos is better for web servers, is that true?

Server :: Creating A Fake ROOT DNS?

Mar 31, 2010

how to set up a fake ROOT dns that I would be using inside my virtual test environment with private address range. Basically, I want to create a ROOT server that will only contain information to two separate dns servers that are authoritative for its respective domains/zones.

I can't seem to find anything on the net about this subject. Basically, how is a ROOT server configured and how should the fake hint-file for authoritative dns-servers be configured?

I want basically domain.xx and domain.yy to be able "find eachother" by using response from ROOT server. I know I could set up forwarders to respective domain on each of the virtual DNS server instead, but I want to experiment a bit the way I stated above - with a "real" (fake) ROOT server, if it is possible!

Server :: Creating A VPN Using Lenny With A Single NIC

Aug 18, 2010

I want to create a VPN server using my Linux box that is running Lenny. I've googled and googled and tryed and tryed, and I havent been able to find something that will help me get it going. The server that I am running at the moment does not have a desktop installed as I don't need one. I access it through SSH.

So scenario that I have got and I want to incorperate is this:

I have a ADSL2 router that I want to port forward to my VPN server, and my VPN server has 1 physical NIC and a logical that I have pre-configured (Sub interface) thats on a different network. so this is what the IP configuration is: (Router/Gateway) (Linux Box/Proposed VPN server/eth1) (Linux Box/Proposed VPN server/eth1:1) (Windows Server that I can remote access to through the VPN)

I've looked at a few daemons that are available online for Linux. But I just can't figure out how to set it up properly. Perhaps someone who knows the best practices and pracedures when it comes to VPN with Linux that can pass there wisdom to me so I can note this down and keep it for later on.

Server :: Creating Partition For Additional Lun?

Apr 26, 2011

I am using NFS to mount large LUNs from my SAN.I have one already setup and configured. I am adding an additional partition from the same SAN but I am confused on the setup. I know the LUN is connecting to my NFS server correctly because I see it listed in my /proc/scsi/scsi as an additional LUN. What I don't see is the drive being displayed in fdisk -l. I did notice one thing though, when I disable the host mapping from the SAN, my disk information changes from /dev/sdb TO /dev/sdc (see changes below)

Without host mapping to SAN:

Disk /dev/sda: 13999.0 GB, 13999026470912 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1701951 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
