In order to support chkconfig, an init script must:
1. Be located in /etc/rc.d/init.d (which /etc/init.d is a symlink to)
2. Have a commented out line that contains "chkconfig: <default runlevels
for this service> <start priority> <stop priority>"
3. Have a commented out line that contains "description: <a description
of the service>"
4. Upon successful service startup, place a lock file in /var/lock/subsys
that matches the name of the service script. Upon successful service
shutdown, the lockfile must be removed.
It is worth noting that you must use "chkconfig --add <service
name>" in order to have the service script placed in the shutdown/restart
There are many great examples already provided by existing services. They
should be fairly straightforward reading.
Best of luck,
