my_script.sh. It is executable and can be run over
I also have script that kills
my_script.sh, let’s call it
kill_my_scprit.sh. The contents of
#!/bin/bash sudo kill -SIGINT $(pgrep my_script)
In essence, this should mimic
This works perfectly fine if I run the scripts from a terminal, i.e. in ttyX I run
./path/to/my_scrit.sh to start it and in ttyY
./path/to/kill_my_scrit.sh to initiate the shut down sequence of
As mentioned before, the goal is to run this as deamon, so I created
[Unit] .... [Service] Type=simple User=root WorkingDirectory=/path/to/dir/ ExecStart=/path/to/my_script.sh ExecStop=/path/to/kill_my_script.sh Restart=on-failure [Install] ...
sudo systemctl start my_script.service starts the script as expected, but using
sudo systemctl stop my_script.service starts the shutdown sequence for
my_script.sh, but doesn’t let it finish… Am I missing something? The shutdown sequence takes roughly 10sec…
