NAME
runsvchdir - change services directory of runsvdir(8) SYNOPSIS
runsvchdir dir DESCRIPTION
dir is a services directory for the use with runsvdir(8). If dir does not start with a slash, it is searched in /etc/runit/runsvdir/. dir must not start with a dot. runsvchdir switches to the directory /etc/runit/runsvdir/, copies current to previous, and replaces current with a symlink pointing to dir. Normally /etc/service is a symlink to current, and runsvdir(8) is running /etc/service/. EXIT CODES
runsvchdir prints an error message and exits 111 on error. runsvchdir exits 0 on success. FILES
/etc/runit/runsvdir/previous /etc/runit/runsvdir/current /etc/runit/runsvdir/current.new SEE ALSO
