I am having trouble launching Webware at boot on MacOS X 10.3.9. A
StartupItem is the Apple method to launch a program on MacOS X at boot
or login. It is merely a shell script and a preference files in a
I have installed Webware for Python on the osx server in the normal
manner. I can start and stop it using cli as root or admin. The system
responds correctly to the browser requests. I followed the instructions
for creating a Startup Item at <http://www.macdevcenter.com/lpt/a/4288>
but Webware is unresponsive after reboot.
I am pretty confident permissions are correct as I compared my files
and the Webware files, to the OpenBase install. The OpenBase server
fires up every time. For the record, it is root:wheel for all of them.
The system log shows the console message. So the startupitem script is
executing. I noticed the process is called "AppServer" when started
from the cli but "python" when started from the reboot sequence.
Any thoughts, suggestions or links would be warmly accepted.
