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:

  1. 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.

  2. Save that file as /etc/init.d/rapidminerserver and make it executable by calling

    chmod 755 /etc/init.d/rapidminerserver
  3. 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
