(1) Log in as kresh (user who owns the fgs application)
(2) cd /home/kresh/fgs
(3) . setenv.sh (from inside /home/kresh/fgs)
(4) fgs start (from inside /home/kresh/fgs)
I want fgs to autostart, so I put the following line in rc.local:
su kresh -c "( cd /home/kresh/fgs/; . setenv.sh ; fgs start)"
But when I restart the server, fgs does not start. However, when I execute the above line as root:
[root@devserv ~]$ su kresh -c "( cd /home/kresh/fgs/; . setenv.sh ; fgs start)
fgs starts flawlessly.
I suspect it is a login problem, ie, rc.local fails at the su kresh part.
I have tried the following line as well:
sudo su kresh -c "( cd /home/kresh/fgs/; . setenv.sh ; fgs start)"
Again, rc.local doesn't seem to execute that, but executing it after logged in as root succeeds.
What should I do? By the way, I'm using CentOS 4.2.
