How to run celery as a daemon in production?

i created a celeryd file in /etc/defaults/ from the code here:

https://github.com/celery/celery/blob/3.0/extra/generic-init.d/celeryd

Now when I want to run celeryd as a daemon and do this: sudo /etc/init.d/celerdy it says command not found. Where am I going wrong?

Answer

I am not sure what you are doing here but these are the steps to run celery as a daemon.

  1. The file that you have referred in the link https://github.com/celery/celery/blob/3.0/extra/generic-init.d/celeryd needs to be copied in your /etc/init.d folder with the name celeryd
  2. Then you need to create a configuration file in the folder /etc/default with the name celeryd that is used by the above script. This configuration file basically defines certain variables and paths that are used by the above script.
  3. This link Generic init scripts explains the process and can be used for reference
