The Booting Process

Yes there is just such a place

Your launch script should look like this.

File name

exec /usr/servers/bots/zDSBot3/zDSBot3 &

put it in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/

The permission on this script file must be read, write, exec for
owner root.
Chmod 700 /usr/local/etc/rc.d/

During the boot process after rc.conf gets executed then any file in
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ that ends with .sh gets executed. That's where
dhcp, apache and all other ports get launched from at boot time.

Subject: The Booting Process

Is there a way, when booting, to have an application launch?

exec /usr/servers/bots/zDSBot3/zDSBot3 &

Where would I add this line, if possible? If not, would it be
possible to be
made in the next version?
