Configuring NASK queue deamon


For the Queue to work correctly:

  • must have python installed
  • must add commands to the service so that the Queue works after restarting the server

Commands:

  • start: {path to python} {path to the NASK module}/deamon/nask.py start
  • stop: {path to python} {path to the NASK module}/deamon/nask.py stop
  • restart: {path to python} {path to the NASK module}/deamon/nask.py restart

Example for CentOS 7:

ExecStart=/usr/bin/python /home/hostbill/public_html/includes/modules/Domain/nask/deamon/nask.py start
ExecStop=/usr/bin/python /home/hostbill/public_html/includes/modules/Domain/nask/deamon/nask.py stop
ExecReload=/usr/bin/python /home/hostbill/public_html/includes/modules/Domain/nask/deamon/nask.py restart
RemainAfterExit=yes
