Default Auto Start EQEMU on Bootup

I have been successful in finally getting a Linux (deb x32) up and running with mercs and bots functional on the latest releases. Fun experience learning about Linux and MySQL.

I have found several posts with scripts presented to auto start EQEMU required programs, but I cannot seem to get them to work. I even tried to cobble together one of my own to start one as a service with no luck using the init.d feature.

Any Linux Masters out there help me with this one?

Look up how to create a cron task. You can use that for executing scripts at start up

Thanks!

What you want is for your init process to run it, not cron. Cron can do it but it's basically a hack.

If your version of Debian uses systemd, you'll want to make a unit file. You can see the ones I'm using in my post history.

If it's using sysvinit still, you'll want either a /etc/init.d script or to put it in your /etc/inittab. The latter will ensure that it starts back up if it crashes.
