How do I run a source as service?

October 19, 2014 763 views

Hi guys,

I've recently compiled Icecast-KH on my Ubuntu box. However I want it to run as a service... Like you can do with icecast when you isntall via apt-get:

I can restart Icecast when installed via apt-get by typing
service icecast2 restart

Can I somehow get this working with the Icecast-KH build I built from source?
