Re: Autostarting Apache and MySQL

What is the '/var/run/$NAME.pid' referred to in this skeleton script? 
And how do I establish this?  (I compiled Mysql and Apache)

Also, I start Apache by issuing the command "apachectl start" and 
stop it by issuing "apachectl stop."   It is in /usr/local/apache/bin/.  
Is "/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl" the "DAEMON" referred to in 
this script?  I take it that "apache" would be the "NAME,"   Correct?
