comment Linux: user defined daemons/services
This doesn't solve "start service at startup without manual interaction". You'd still have to put each service in /etc/init.d and that's what I tried to avoid. Of course sudo may be a part of the final solution but by itself it doesn't solve the problem.

No, sudo only handles the actual switch to a different user account but it doesn't enable users to manage their own services.

comment Set default TLS SNI vhost for Apache 2.2 on CentOS 6
If possible, I'd like to keep the vhost names like they are as they use a pretty structured format. Also I find the file naming workaround a bit clumsy as the knowledge about default vhost/file naming is implicit (as opposed to an apache directive which I can google/document).

voretaq7: I take that as a joke. Of course I won't fiddle around with permissions on important directories like /etc/rc.d! So yes, in practice adding an init script does require root privileges.

comment Linux: user defined daemons/services
As I commented above I hoped for something more sophisticated with daemon control/status querying etc (without building this all by myself for each and every service again). I mean my needs are not that uncommon, are they?

comment Linux: user defined daemons/services
That's a very nice start and actually fulfills all my basic needs! However (I'm not easy to satisfy you know ;-) I hoped for something more sophisticated with job control (is the service running?, restarting it, reloading it, ...).

Well, as I said it's not about running as root so of course the daemon instances can't access privileged ports but that's fine. However the problem with creating an init script is that this requires root privileges.
