I have a single command in my
/etc/rc.local script that is supposed to start the update daemon for Tiny Tiny RSS during startup, but the script is not executed during startup. Why?
The entire /etc/rc.local file:
#!/bin/sh -e # # rc.local # # This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel. # Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other # value on error. # # In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution # bits. # # By default this script does nothing. /sbin/start-stop-daemon -b -c www-data:www-data -S -x /usr/bin/php /var/www/ttrss/update_daemon2.php -- -quiet exit 0
/etc/rc.local is executable:
# ls -l /etc/rc.local -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 342 May 25 16:14 /etc/rc.local
/etc/init.d/rc.local exists and is executable:
# ls -l /etc/init.d/rc.local -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 801 Jul 27 2012 /etc/init.d/rc.local
/etc/init.d/rc.local is supposed to be executed at startup for this runlevel:
# runlevel N 2 # ls -l /etc/rc2.d/S99rc.local lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Sep 22 2012 /etc/rc2.d/S99rc.local -> ../init.d/rc.local
If I manually call /etc/rc.local from the command line the update_daemon loads...
# /etc/rc.local # ps ax | grep update_daemon2.php 2233 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/php /media/sda5/www/news/update_daemon2.php -quiet 2234 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/php /media/sda5/www/news/update_daemon2.php -quiet
... which I have to remember to do every time my server restarts until this problem is fixed.
Why is the command in rc.local not executed during startup?
