10.4. Unix SYSV startup script Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

The Radiator distribution contains a Unix/Linux SYSV compatible startup script in goodies/linux-radiator.init.
To use this script to start and stop Radiator by hand or automatically at boot time, on Linux as root:
cp goodies/linux-radiator.init /etc/init.d/radiator
chmod 755 /etc/init.d/radiator
chkconfig -add radiator
This startup script responds to the following commands:
  • /etc/init.d/radiator start
    Starts the Radiator server running in the background as a service. This is the default command which will be used to start Radiator automatically at boot time when the startup script is automatically run.
  • /etc/init.d/radiator stop
    Stop the Radiator server.
  • /etc/init.d/radiator restart
    Stop then restart the Radiator server.
  • /etc/init.d/radiator reload
    Forces the Radiator server to reread its configuration file. It does this by sending a HUP signal to the server.
  • /etc/init.d/radiator status
    Prints the current status of the Radiator server process.
  • /etc/init.d/radiator traceup
    Increases the current Radiator server Trace level by one. It does this by sending a USR1 signal to the server.
  • /etc/init.d/radiator tracedown
    Decreases the current Radiator server Trace level by one. It does this by sending a USR2 signal to the server.
