I am slightly lost, I have a
Debian 9 server and a
Flask script that I am trying to launch at startup.
In the past I have used
rc.local to launch things at startup but from reading it seems that it is now deprecated.
Can anyone tell me what is its replacement, what method am I best using now?
You launch it using a systemd unit, like every other service.
There are numerous tutorials out on the Internet about how to set this up. Or you can just start with a skeleton unit something like:
[Unit] Description=uWSGI instance to serve my project After=network.target [Service] User=you Group=www-data WorkingDirectory=/home/you/project Environment="PATH=/home/you/project/venv/bin" ExecStart=/home/you/project/venv/bin/uwsgi --ini uwsgi.ini [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
