Is there a brief guide to explain how to start up a application when the instance starts up and running? If it were one of the services installed through yum then I guess I can use /sbin/chkconfig to add it to the service. (To make it sure, is it correct?)
However, I just want to run the program which was not installed through yum. To run node.js program, I will have to run script sudo node app.js at home directory whenever the system boots up.
I am not used to Amazon Linux AMI so I am having little trouble finding a 'right' way to run some script automatically on every boot.
Is there an elegant way to do this?
