Automatically starting programs in Red Hat Linux.
I am wondering how to go about automatically starting programs when my Red Hat (Version 8 ) Linux distribution starts up. I need to know which file contains startup scripts and the format of startup commands. This is required because I want to start the Postmaster of PostgreSQL on bootup.
Also in addition to the above is it possible to set up Red Hat so that a particular program (in this instance PostgreSQL) only starts for a particular login identity?
Thanks for your assistance.
