making a application a service in linux
Posted on 2004-09-12
I need to find the BEST way to run a app as a service in linux.
Im going to run a php script that will call that app and start or stop it. We currently do this in windows using the net stop service_name and we need a similar way in linux. Something like firedaemon but for linux.
The solution should meet the following requirements:
1.) be able to start,stop,restart the service from a php script via the internet.
2.) be a stable solution.
3.) run any type of app i choose to run this way.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
