Debian startup script 3

From SqueezeboxWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

I have created a thorough set of Debian scripts at http://www.holmlund.se/slim/. My scripts include

  • A wrapper around slimserver.pl that restarts it in case it dies. This is useful if you want to use the MySQL backend, since slimserver dies if the MySQL-server restarts.
  • A logrotate file that rotates the slimserver.log automatically.
  • A dedicated slimserver user as well as proper permissions for all files.
  • Proper file-locations using /var/log, /etc, /var/run.
  • Installation instructions to get everything up and running.

I will describe my scripts better here if there is any interest in them. Please try them out and report success/failure to the slimserver-developers list to help me get the scripts into the repository.
