Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Multiple Instances using rpm installation
The way to do the init stuff with chkconfig would be to copy /etc/rc.d/init.d/aolserver to /etc/rc.d/init.d/aolserver2 and then edit it to use the copied and edited /etc/aolserver/nsd.tcl, perhaps /etc/aolserver/nsd2.tcl or whatever you prefer. Then
/sbin/chkconfig aolserver2 onwould (as far as I know) work fine.
In fact, it might be quite practical to create a script that sets this up, copying and editing as needed, for aolserver2 to aolserver999 or whatever, and include it in the next version of my RPMs.
Would it be useful to the community for me to create such a script?
BTW, is the "issue with non-English characters" a problem in AOLserver3.3+ad13? If it is, could you explain it further please?
