Upstart for voipmonitor ubuntu 12.04

Upstart scripts are deprecated since version of ubuntu 15.04 (so this should be valid for 12.04 and possibly 14.04)

Voipmonitor install script by default install sysV init script that is used to start stop service. But when you using upstart script for booting / starting mysql, service in sysV are started before services in upstart, and thus voipmonitor start needs to be configured as startup script instead of init.d init script.

write upstart init script create a file /etc/init/voipmonitor.conf

exec /etc/init.d/voipmonitor start
expect fork
start on started mysql
pre-start script
  /etc/init.d/voipmonitor start
end script
post-stop script
  /etc/init.d/voipmonitor stop
end script

disable upstart with sysV, first check if its enabled

chkconfig voipmonitor
update-rc.d -f voipmontior remove

you can control voipmonitor with commands

service voipmonitor start|stop|restart
