Sometimes we need run custom scripts on the server statrtup. This article explains the steps to configure custom scripts to run during the server startup.
Step1: Create the script.
Here we are taking one shell script with file name "script.sh" as example.
#!/bin/bash echo `date` > /var/log/script.log
Step2: Assign execute permission to the script.
#chmod 755 script.sh
Step3: Assign execute permission to the file '/etc/rc.d/rc.local' for the proper functioning.
#chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/rc.local
Step4: Update the full path to the script as the last line of the file '/etc/rc.d/rc.local'.
