Daemon setup#

The HRM daemon consists of two parts, the actual queue manager (a PHP process) and a shell-based wrapper in $HRM_BIN/hrm_queuemanager that prepares the environment, checks the config, launches the queue manager and cleans up after the process has terminated.

The configuration file for the HRM daemon is /etc/hrm.conf (see Server)


You should never start the PHP process directly as unpredicted effects will happen, in worst case including damage to the HRM database.

Depending on whether your Linux installation is using a “classical” System-V like init system (including upstart) or the more modern systemd, you will need to follow different instructions. Please note that systemd is the default in recent versions of Debian and RedHat-based systems.
