I have installed JDownloader on my Debian based NAS System and want to get JDownloader starting at boot.

I have setup a script in /etc/init.d/jdownloader and can start JD with SSH like /etc/init.d/jdownloader start or service jdownloader start and a user jdownload:jdownload. But how to run JD at startup of my NAS System for this user?

I also found the point "Bootconfiguration (SysV)" in my Webmin installation. but don't know how to use it in my case.


Which ID? Which execution level? And which process I have to entering to run JD as jdownload:jdownload?

Thanks a lot

  • Is your Debian using SystemV init or the newer systemd init?

    That means you're using systemd as a init system.
