Are these the scripts provided by the ports? They should be installed
without the '.sh' extension. See rc(8).

See the manual pages for rc(8) and rcorder(8). 

Basically, you need to put a number of special comments in the scripts
for the rc system to work with them. For instance, the script for resin
(made from /usr/ports/www/resin3/files/ should be modified like:

# REQUIRE: LOGIN apache22

The latter is provided by the startup script installed by apache. This
is generated from /usr/ports/www/apache22/files/ 

Both should of course be enabled in /etc/rc.conf:
