Resin can be configured to start automatically when the system
boots up using StartupItems. Create a directory in
/Library/StartupItems called "Resin". In that directory are two files:
# Resin Application Server
ConsoleMessage "Starting Resin"
$RESIN_HOME/bin/httpd.sh start -J-server -Xms32M -Xmx64M
ConsoleMessage "Stopping Resin"
ConsoleMessage "Restarting Resin"
Description = "Resin Application Server";
Provides = ("Resin");
Requires = ("Web Server");
OrderPreference = "None";
start = "Starting Resin";
stop = "Stopping Resin";
restart = "Restarting Resin";
Note: The StartupParameters.plist file example above requires that the
service named "Web Server", which is Apache, is started before Resin starts. If
you run Resin standalone, remove that dependency.
Resin will start automatically when your system boots.
You can stop, start and restart Resin using the following commands
from a terminal:
sudo SystemStarter start Resin
sudo SystemStarter stop Resin
sudo SystemStarter restart Resin
Since Resin is started by root, consider using the <user-name>
and <group-name> tags to change the effective user id of Resin:
