Now, I need to start the server like this.


I have to this every time I start and logged into my machine. It would be so good if there is a script which does the same automatically when I again start the machine.

Need help with that.

    What is written in the script? If you have only comands, like service foo start or systemctrl start foo there is a easy way

After ssh to the server Just backgrounding your script (./myscript &) will not daemonize it. You must disconnect stdin, stdout, and stderr, and make it ignore the hangup signal (SIGHUP).

nohup ./myscript 0<&- &>/dev/null

will do the job. Or, to capture all output:

nohup ./myscript 0<&- &> my.admin.log.file &
