Run Funambol like a service

Really it didn’t worked for me, but I did it:

As of this edition of the user guide, the Funambol Data Synchronization Service won’t automatically
start when you start or restart the host server.
Follow these steps to automate server startup on a Linux host:
1. Using a terminal window, copy the startup script into the /etc/init.d directory using the following
command:
cp $FUNAMBOL_HOME/bin/funambol /etc/init.d/funambol
2. Open the newly copied script in a text editor and change the following line:
FUNAMBOL_HOME=`(cd .. ; pwd)`
to:
FUNAMBOL_HOME=`(cd $FUNAMBOL_HOME ; pwd)`
This points the script to the absolute location of your installation.
3. Create a symbolic link to your rc3.d directory using this command:
ln -s /etc/init.d/funambol /etc/rc3.d/S30funambol
To verify that the Funambol Data Synchronization Service is running, start a web browser and open
the URL http://<servername&gt;:8080/funambol. A Data Synchronization Service test page should
appear.
