it helps to know the os you are useing. different oses use differnt ways to start services.

if you read the apache2 docs you should see a section that says how to install it as a service.

basicly you create a script and put it with the rest fo your run control scripts. and link to it from teh proper init level directory.


in solaris all the run control scripts are in /etc/init.d
you create your start/shutdown script in there.

then usually in /etc/rc3.d you create a hard link to the script you just created. The link would be named S##script-name (ie: S99apache2) and you would have a shutdown script in /etc/rc0-2.d also. These scripts would start with a K.
