Dpkg Autostart

dpkg likes to start services after installation as the Debian convention dictates. This can be annoying and problematic, especially when you don't want services to be immediately started before custom configuration can be applied. Instead of disabling all services from auto starting on installation as the dpkg_deb_unautostart cookbook does, lets allow specifc services to be targeted.



Include the cookbook as a dependency in your metadata:

depends 'dpkg_autostart'

Then, within your recipe, disable the service with the LWRP:

dpkg_autostart 'mysql-server' do
  allow false

That's it. When dpkg attempts to start the service after install (generally via apt) it will be instructed not to. This allows the proper configuration files to be generated, and the service to be started after everything is ready.


You can also provide a list of services to disable via node attribute. Add the default recipe to the run list:

run_list 'recipe[dpkg_autostart]'

and set the services you want to restrict from auto starting:

node[:dpkg_autostart][:disabled_services] = ['mysql-server', 'apache2']
