I have a Python script that looks files up in a relative directory. For example: the Python script is in
/home/username/projectname/. I have a file that is being called within the Python script that is in
If I run the script from the shell as
python scriptname.py it runs perfectly fine.
However, I'm trying to run the script as a startup service. I'm setting it up in webmin, and I believe its creating a shell script to call it. Through the startup script, I'm doing something like this to call the script:
execute python home/username/projectname/scriptname.py
The script is starting up fine, but it can't access the files in the relative directory.
I am guessing that there is a better way to call the Python program from within the startup script so that its aware of the relative path.
