This should be simple, but I am stuck figuring it out.

I am using apcupsd to manage my system in case of power outage.

I know how to start the server: sudo /etc/apcupsd/apcupsd start (See the manual here.)

But how do I make apcupsd run at boot on an Ubuntu system?

    Did you install it straightforwardly just with apt? I did it that way and whatever magic is required to start it automatically was done for me. – Organic Marble Sep 11 '18 at 0:47

The installation script should have handled this for you. If you are on GUI, you can confirm by checking for apcupsd in the list of startup applications:

System > Preferences > Startup Applications

If this is not the case or doesn't apply, these further resources can assist:
