I have the following init.d script:

#! /bin/sh

esac  

I'm aware that stop doesn't do anything useful at the moment.

My problem is with the lines:

python3 "/home/pi/Python Projects/episode_tracker/manage.py" runserver 0.0.0.0:12345  --insecure
python3 "/home/pi/Python Projects/shifts_server/manage.py" runserver 0.0.0.0:23456  --insecure  

For some reason, only the first one is executed. If I comment the first one, then the second is executed (so the syntax is correct, the path exists etc).

If it matters, the OS is Raspbian.

The manage.py runserver command isn't forking off as a daemon and so the init script is sitting there waiting to finish. You can put a & at the end of the two lines to make them both be backgrounded.

python3 "/home/pi/Python Projects/episode_tracker/manage.py" runserver 0.0.0.0:12345  --insecure &
python3 "/home/pi/Python Projects/shifts_server/manage.py" runserver 0.0.0.0:23456  --insecure &
