My server was rebooted but didn't realize Apache didn't restart on it's own and my web was down. How can I get APache to auto start with boot? I'm using Unix AIX. Thanks in advance for all the help.

By the way, anyone also know of a web server monitor to make sure it's on?

Goto Start > Run > services.msc

In services search for Apache service, click right button, properties, and set to automatic.

One way is to add the command to start apache to the file rc.local, normally located in /etc/.

I am not 100% sure, but you may be able to setup auto start of daemons using SMIT.

Found  this (ref: http://archive.apache.org/gnats/2662)

Add "apache:2:wait:/etc/rc.apache > /dev/console 2>&1"
to /etc/inittab

create file rc.apache and put in /etc/  this file should contain

     #!/usr/bin/ksh
     /usr/local/apache/sbin/apachectl start
