Controlling Centova Cast

Init Script

Centova Cast includes an LSB-compliant init script in /etc/init.d/centovacast which functions similarly to other standard init scripts, i.e.:

  • /etc/init.d/centovacast start -- starts Centova Cast
  • /etc/init.d/centovacast stop -- stops Centova Cast
  • /etc/init.d/centovacast restart -- restarts Centova Cast
  • /etc/init.d/centovacast reload -- reloads configuration files where possible
  • /etc/init.d/centovacast status -- shows process statuses

This is the approved and recommended way to control Centova Cast. During installation Centova Cast is automatically configured to start when your server boots up.

Advanced Process Control

Centova Cast's init script also provides functionality for controlling individual Centova Cast processes.

  • /etc/init.d/centovacast start-web -- starts the web interface (cc-web)
  • /etc/init.d/centovacast start-app -- starts the application server (cc-app)
  • /etc/init.d/centovacast start-ccd -- starts the control daemon (cc-control)
  • /etc/init.d/centovacast start-ftp -- starts the FTP server (cc-ftpd)
  • /etc/init.d/centovacast start-img -- starts the image daemon (cc-imaged)

Replace start with stop in each of the above commands to stop the associated process.
