I’‘m installing Wildfire on a Debian Linux, Sarge (Stable) machine. I’‘m trying to install it too run on startup, and I’'m a bit confused.
Since I’‘m not using RedHat, I’‘m using the wildfired init script. I’‘m not new to linux, but I’'m quite unfamilliar with init scripts and runlevels. Some questions:
before running this script make sure $WILDFIRE_HOME/bin/wildfire is
executable by the user you want to run wildfire as
(chmod +x $WILDFIRE_HOME/bin/wildfire)
First of all, I have the wildfire directory stored in /opt so I would assume that $WILDFIRE_HOME would be /opt/wildfire, am I correct?
Also, what uid should the wildfire files be owned by? Does it matter? They’'re currently owned by my own uid “faber”, but if need be I can change that.
Also, there is a mention in wildfired that wildfire will run as a certain user – specifically as “jive”. Do I have to create that user? How do I do that? And should the files be owned by that user? What permissions should that user have?
Finally, it says to link to the script in the “default runlevel directory”. When I execute the command they give to figure out what it is ( grep default /etc/inittab ) the output is thuswise:
cyberdelia:/opt/wildfire/bin# grep default /etc/inittab
- The default runlevel.
This doesn’‘t seem terribly helpful. I still don’'t know what the “default runlevel directory” is.
Can anyone give me a hand? Thanks in advance for the help!
