Hello everyone!

My ISP where I have my web page, is running freeBSD 4.0. I do not know a lot
about it. I know how to use crontab to start ZOPE at certain time how ever
how do I use crontab to check on the script that is already running?
Starting ZOPE again when it's running produces an error message and I do not
know if that was a healthy solution.

to start it I would be using something like:

5       *       *       *       *       root    ./start

This would start the script every five minutes. Now how do I check if the
script is running after it's been started and if it wasn't to restart it
again. Also I was thinking to run ZOPE in DEBUG mode. That way it stays
attached to the terminal (crontab I guess).
I know about z2.pid. Nevertheless I find ZOPE down quite often every time
they do something at the ISP. I asked them what to do and they told me to
use crontab to check the script and restart it. For some reason they don't
want me to use rc.d
If I could guarantee to remove the z2.pid every time ZOPE goes down, I could
apparently include something like this:

if [ -x /home/virtuals/account/zope/z2.pid ]
        // exit(0)

5       *       *       *       *       root    ./start

to check if the file is present and if not to run the script. That can't be
done when ZOPE exits abnormally though.

Is this setup at all possible?
