    How to start JBoss AS 7 as a service on CentOS 6

    Fernando Correia Newbie

      I searched the web and the JBoss documentation but I couldn't find authoritative information on how to setup JBoss AS 7 on CentOS 6 so that it runs automatically as a service.

       

      The best match I could find was about JBoss 6: http://davidghedini.blogspot.com/2011/03/install-jboss-6-on-centos.html

       

      Could anyone point me in the right direction?

          Make a symlink from /etc/init.d/jboss -> JBOSS/bin/init.d/jboss-as-standalone.sh and do chkconfig --add jboss

            Nicklas, thank you for your answer.

             

            I downloaded both jboss-as-web-7.0.2.Final.tar.gz and jboss-as-7.0.2.Final.tar.gz and neither of them seems to include a bin/init.d/jboss-as-standalone.sh file. They have bin/standalone.sh but that doesn't look like a init.d script.

             

            Edit: I found that file in 7.1 Beta, so I'll try the script with 7.0.2.

              For the record, I solved the issue by adapting the script in 7.1 Beta. I still think there should be more guidance on how to properly install JBoss AS 7 on CentOS.

                djabba74 Newbie

                On CentOS 6 (and maybe other Distros too), the /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions has no executable flag set. The jboss init.d script itself sources it with  ". /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions"

                 

                ll /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions

                -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 18171 Oct  7 16:01 /etc/rc.d/init.d/function

                 

                So you might want to fix the jboss init.d script the following way:

                 

                # diff  /opt/jboss-as/bin/init.d/jboss-as-standalone.sh /etc/init.d/jboss

                89c89

                <     if [ -x /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions ]; then

                ---

                >     if [ -r /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions ]; then
