There are many ways to accomplish the same result this is just my preference.
Centos 6 To auto start services in Centos or Redhat OS, you can use builtin chkconfig utility. It is located in /sbin directory. If you are a regular user (non-root), then /sbin may not be in your path. Therefore, you may have to use the full path to access the chkconfig utility.
To auto start a new service: Find out the name of service script from /etc/init.
