init.d startup questions

Postby vangale » Tue Sep 21, 2010 7:44 pm

I see in the docs we can link the omero script to /etc/init.d to get daemon startup.

Can we do the same for web client? e.g.:

# ln -s /home/omero/bin/omero /etc/init.d/omero-web

Also, our admins are worried about the daemon starting as root. I see there's a way to configure the blitz daemons to start as "omero" but can someone spell that out for me? I don't know where the "user" attribute goes in that XML. Any way to get the other daemons to run under "omero" user?

unfortunately, there's nothing in place to do what you want at the moment. There are several tickets related to init.d:

There's also an example init.d script which we use for our Ubuntu virtual image:

That being said, you can use a symlink from omero-web to in order to do:
Code: Select all
omero-web start

but it won't (yet) change to the intended user.
