"How do I create a Linux service for RapidMiner Server"
Linux systems have a special folder, /etc/init.d/ for scripts that are to be executed at system startup. To start RapidMiner Server when the system boots, follow these steps:
Open the attached script in an editor. Modify the variables in the header:
should be the Linux user that will run the service. The user must already exist. Use the useradd command to create one.
should point to your RapidMiner Server installation.
Save that file as /etc/init.d/rapidminerserver and make it executable by calling
chmod 755 /etc/init.d/rapidminerserver
Tell the system to execute that script at boot and shutdown. You can do so by calling
chkconfig --add rapidminerserver
This script works on Ubuntu
