[Mono-devel-list] mod_mono start/stop script

I use the following solution (working on Fedora Core 1).

1. I have a group "aspnet"

2. Apache user is a member of this group (this way it can access
/tmp/mod_mono_server without a problem)

3. My /etc/init.d/aspnet is attached. This should be run as root.

4. It makes use of two helper scripts "start_aspnet" and "stop_aspnet" which
run off the "aspnet" account. Both are attached.

5. Currently I have just one managed application, but when I have more, I'm
going to move the configuration to /etc/sysconfig/aspnet or sth.

It just works. The advantage is that you don't need to restart apache,
because the file permissions are just right and it works nice after reboot.

Feel free to use and extend this solution if you find it any useful.
