how to make pureFTPd run as a daemon?


I set up pureFPPd on my linode and now I want it to run automatically after reboot. Probably using init.d?

Any idea how I can do that?

Thank you

There should be a script for pureFTPd in /etc/init.d.

Debian / Ubuntu:

update-rc.d script_name defaults

CentOS / Fedora

chkconfig --config script_name
chkconfig script_name on


rc-update add script_name default

not sure if it's because I compiled the pureFTPd by myself but I do not have any pureFTPd script in /etc/init.d

I thought I would modify some other one but not sure how :-)

thank you
