I have a custom version of CENTOS that I need to run a perl script as a daemon in at all times.
To do this I want to get it to run on startup as a daemon.
When the machine is on I can daemonize the script with the command
And this works fine.
So I have an rc1 script which has a number of commands that run when the machine starts, and the very last line in it is where I try to daemonize that script. Everything else in the rc1 script runs fine, and the script doesn't output any errors, however when I check to see if the daemon is running on start up, it isn't running.
Is there another way that I can get the script to run on startup? Or any ideas on why this method doesn't work?
