I'd like to run a PHP script when an instance is told to shutdown, but of course before it actually finishes shutting down. My particular script is just looking to push some log files from the local partition to a another server.
I've got the gist of how this process works, but I need some clarification.
How I understand it. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
- Create an executable script in /etc/init.d (lets call it /etc/init.d/push-logs)
- Create a symlink to /etc/init.d/push-logs from /etc/rc0.d (shutdown) and /etc/rc6.d (reboot). The name should be KXXpush-logs
Here's my questions:
- Of course - am I understanding correctly?
- For #2 above - it sounds like the lower the XX the better - is there too low a number I can use? Does it matter if it shares a number with another script?
- Does the script in /etc/init.d/push-logs HAVE to follow the standard init.d template (supporting start/stop, etc. commands)? This doesn't really apply to my use case. If possible I just want the script to be the following:
#!/bin/sh # # Run PHP file prior to shutdown # /usr/bin/php /path/to/php_file.php
