Trying to make my script run at startup by placing it in /etc/init.d/. But this doesn't helped. What else I must do?


It needs to be executable and installed.

Make it executable:

sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/YOUR_SCRIPT

Install it to all runlevels:

sudo update-rc.d YOUR_SCRIPT defaults

Now restart and see your script gets run at startup.

Have Fun!


Btw. Your script is a service now. You could always stop/start/restart it with

sudo service YOUR_SCRIPT stop/start/restart
