I have a start script for TeamSpeak3 server in /etc/init.d that is run at the boot time.

#! /bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          ts3
# Required-Start:    $network mysql
# Required-Stop:     $network
# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop:      0 1 6
# Short-Description: TeamSpeak3 Server Daemon
# Description:       Starts/Stops/Restarts the TeamSpeak Server Daemon
### END INIT INFO

set -e

PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
DESC="TeamSpeak3 Server"
NAME=teamspeak3-server
USER=teamspeak3
DIR=/opt/teamspeak3-server
OPTIONS=inifile=ts3server.ini
DAEMON=$DIR/ts3server_startscript.sh
#PIDFILE=/var/run/$NAME.pid
SCRIPTNAME=/etc/init.d/$NAME

# Gracefully exit if the package has been removed.
test -x $DAEMON || exit 0

sleep 2
sudo -u $USER $DAEMON $1 $OPTIONS

And I need this to happen:

  1. Run a script ./MyScript that exits immediately and is located in TS3 directory
  2. Wait some time
  3. Run the actual daemon that will stay running

I am not really good with Unix scripting, I just need to run a server with this. I might also mention that I am running latest Ubuntu.

Thanks for help, krejcar25

Its simple just run it before the command that run the TS3 DAEMON in the last line in your script then set sleep command for let's say for 5 sec for example and the script will be like that:

#! /bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          ts3
# Required-Start:    $network mysql
# Required-Stop:     $network
# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop:      0 1 6
# Short-Description: TeamSpeak3 Server Daemon
# Description:       Starts/Stops/Restarts the TeamSpeak Server Daemon
### END INIT INFO

set -e

PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
DESC="TeamSpeak3 Server"
NAME=teamspeak3-server
USER=teamspeak3
DIR=/opt/teamspeak3-server
OPTIONS=inifile=ts3server.ini
DAEMON=$DIR/ts3server_startscript.sh
#PIDFILE=/var/run/$NAME.pid
SCRIPTNAME=/etc/init.d/$NAME

# Gracefully exit if the package has been removed.
test -x $DAEMON || exit 0

sleep 2
#####################################################
$DIR/MyScript
sleep 5
#####################################################
sudo -u $USER $DAEMON $1 $OPTIONS

the $DER var refer to the TS3 service directory /opt/teamspeak3-server
