On 5.2.1-RELEASE-p1, in /usr/local/etc/rc.d, I have scripts that start my MySQL database, and that start my Courier-IMAP daemons. When the scripts for courier run, one of the first things they do is start authdaemond, which should fire up several authdaemond.mysql processes and then they start the imap daemons.

On reboot, the imap daemons are running, but the authdaemond.mysql processes aren't. If I stop the imap script, and re-run it, everything starts up just fine.

I suspect that the database isn't getting started before the imap scripts are run. So, I moved the database startup script to /etc/rc.d, but on reboot, the database wasn't started. I had hoped moving it to /etc/rc.d might start it earlier in the boot process.

Suggestions? TIA.

From man 8 rc.d:

The scripts within each directory are executed in lexicographical
order. If a specific order is required, numbers may be used as a
prefix to the existing filenames, so for example would be
executed before; without the numeric prefixes the opposite
would be true.

You might be able to see this if you've installed, say, mysql-client which uses a script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d called - the 000. forces an early startup. So I suggest you're better off moving the scripts back to /usr/local/etc/rc.d and prefixing them with numerals to get the startup order correct.

One small note - the startup script for mysql-client is prefixed with 000. but the one for mysql-server is not prefixed by a numeral. The mysql client has to start before the server. You'll need to prefix with a numeral but it must be > 000.
