This script can be used to start and stop your script from any folder when it is placed in “/etc/init.d/”. Start with:
service scriptstarter.sh start
#!/bin/bash #var SERVICE starts the script with nohup and & in the background. the shell can still be used even with the script running. SERVICE=nohup /home/script/script.sh & #var SERVICENAME is without nohup and & so it will not be shown in the scriptname SERVICENAME=/home/script/script.sh #if the running script is started with start it will echo "was started", stop = stop, restart = stop,start, anything else will return what you can do. case "$1" in start) $SERVICE [ $? -eq 0 ] && echo "$SERVICENAME was started" ;; stop) pkill -f $SERVICENAME [ $? -eq 0 ] && echo "$SERVICENAME was stopped" ;; restart) $0 stop $0 start ;; *) echo "Usage: $0 (start|stop|restart)" ;; esac
Ubuntu says that it cant compare because your variable isnt integer.
Use == instead of -eq
