Ubuntu Server 14.04.1 LTS startup script java file

I have configured Ubuntu Server 14.04.1 LTS with a git client named gitblit: http://gitblit.com/

To start the gitblit client i need to start the terminal and type the next command: java -jar gitblit.jar every time i start up the ubuntu server.

  • tig configuration : set on tigrc --all as default
  • Cannot add empty folder
  • git - set KDiff3 as default mergetool
  • Checkout git repo with chef with ssh key
  • How to delete a misspelled directory?
  • Using git submodules in a git-svn project
  • Is there a way to autostart this line “java -jar gitblit.jar” with a script or something. I know there was chkconfig but its not supported by ubuntu server 14.

    I have tried several codes like: https://askubuntu.com/questions/99232/how-to-make-a-jar-file-run-on-startup-and-when-you-log-out

    @Magnus Back:
    When i run this line: “bash -x /etc/init.d/gitblit start” in the terminal it says te following:

    start-stop-daemon: user 'admin' not found
    + exit 0
    

    The script looks like:

    #!/bin/bash
    ### BEGIN INIT INFO
    # Provides:          gitblit

    PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin
    
    # change theses values (default values)
    GITBLIT_PATH=/var/www/gitblit
    GITBLIT_BASE_FOLDER=/var/www/gitblit/data
    GITBLIT_USER="admin"
    source ${GITBLIT_PATH}/java-proxy-config.sh
    ARGS="-server -Xmx1024M ${JAVA_PROXY_CONFIG} -Djava.awt.headless=true -jar gitblit.jar --baseFolder $GITBLIT_BASE_FOLDER --dailyLogFile"
    
    RETVAL=0
    
    case "$1" in
      start)
        if [ -f $GITBLIT_PATH/gitblit.jar ];
          then
          echo $"Starting gitblit server"
          start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --background --oknodo --make-pidfile --pidfile /var/run/gitblit.pid --exec /usr/bin/java --chuid $GITBLIT_USER --chdir $GITBLIT_PATH -- $ARGS
          exit $RETVAL
        fi
      ;;
    
      stop)
        if [ -f $GITBLIT_PATH/gitblit.jar ];
          then
          echo $"Stopping gitblit server"
          start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --oknodo --pidfile /var/run/gitblit.pid
          exit $RETVAL
        fi
      ;;
    
      force-reload|restart)
          $0 stop
          sleep 5
          $0 start
      ;;
    
      *)
        echo $"Usage: /etc/init.d/gitblit {start|stop|restart|force-reload}"
        exit 1
      ;;
    esac
    
    exit $RETVAL
    

    So i think to add a new user but how or which. Also i fond another script for starting Gitblit

    But when you download gitblit, in the zip there are files like:
    instal-service.sh with the following lines

    cp gitblit /etc/init.d/
    chmod +x /etc/init.d/gitblit
    sudo update-rc.d gitblit defaults
    

    Also i have found another script maybe you could help me to makes this script to work

    set -e
    
        GITBLIT_PATH=/opt/gitblit
        GITBLIT_HTTP_PORT=0
        GITBLIT_HTTPS_PORT=8443
        JAVA="java -server -Xmx1024M -jar"
    
        . /lib/lsb/init-functions
    
        case "$1" in
          start)
                log_action_begin_msg "Starting gitblit server"
                cd $GITBLIT_PATH
                $JAVA $GITBLIT_PATH/gitblit.jar --httpsPort $GITBLIT_HTTPS_PORT --httpPort $GITBLIT_HTTP_PORT > /dev/null &
                log_action_end_msg $?
                ;;
          stop)
                log_action_begin_msg "Stopping gitblit server"
                cd $GITBLIT_PATH
                $JAVA $GITBLIT_PATH/gitblit.jar --stop > /dev/null &
                log_action_end_msg $?
                ;;
          force-reload|restart)
                $0 stop
                $0 start
                ;;
          *)
                echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/gitblit {start|stop|restart|force-reload}"
                exit 1
                ;;
        esac
    
        exit 0

    You have to write an init script. Go to your /etc/ folder and copy the /etc/skeleton. There you can insert your line and then you can init that script as service in different run levels.

    I have solved the autostart up for gitblit by following this tutorial:

    http://kchard.github.io/gitblit-quickstart/

    In this tutorial you will create a gitblit user named gitblit. I used instead the root user, and everytings works find.
