Snapt for Linux not starting after a reboot

Option 1: rc.local

If you are running the Snapt for Linux bundle you need to ensure you run the

/usr/local/snapt/start.sh

script after you reboot or power up the server in order to load the interface.

The easier way of doing this is to add it to

/etc/rc.local

above the last “exit 0” line. That will ensure it is run at any boot.

Option 2: Crontab

If you’re running on a later version of Ubuntu, such as 18.04, rc.local is no longer available, but you can still start Snapt via cronjob.

Edit the below with your preferred editor (vi, nano, etc)

/etc/crontab

And add the below into the file

@reboot root /usr/local/snapt/start.sh
