Can I configure an /etc/init.d script to start my WiKID two-factor authentication service automatically?


First edit the file /etc/WiKID/security and add a line that says: WAUTH_PASSPHRASE="your_passphrase_to_start_the_server".


#  cp /opt/WiKID/conf/templates/wikid /etc/init.d/wikid
#  chmod +x /etc/init.d/wikid
#  service wikid start
#  chkconfig wikid on
If the server still prompts for a passphrase on startup, you may need to escape special characters in the passphrase.  So, 'pass$phrase' becomes 'pass\$phrase'.
