Rc - Automatically Restarting Programs During Reboot
Your Virtual Server is equipped with the
ability to automatically start daemons (server processes or
programs initiated at boot time that waits
in the background until its service is required) during
host server reboot.
This service insures that important daemons that you
rely on are restarted when a server is taken down during scheduled maintenence and rebooted.
To take advantage of this feature, you just add the programs
you would like to run at system startup to your ~/etc/rc file. You
can either create this file locally on your local computer and upload
it to your Virtual Server (in ASCII mode), or you can edit the file
on your Virtual Server using your favorite Unix file editor, such as pico
The file format is quite simple. Lines that begin with the "#" character
are considered to be comments and are ignored. All other lines are
executed with /bin/sh, or in other words, are executed exactly as if
you typed the command at a command prompt.
RC file entries are documented for several Virtual Server features.
