Running jobqueue.pl as a System Service

For systems that use Upstart or SysV Init, there is a SysV/Upstart init script included with Bugzilla for jobqueue.pl: contrib/bugzilla-queue. It should work out-of-the-box on RHEL, Fedora, CentOS etc.

You can install it by doing ./jobqueue.pl install as root, after already having run checksetup at least once to completion on this Bugzilla installation.

If you are using a system that isn't RHEL, Fedora, CentOS, etc., then you may have to modify contrib/bugzilla-queue and install it yourself manually in order to get jobqueue.pl running as a system service.
