All correct; one can start it by hand for debugging if one knows what they
are doing, but I do not believe that was the intent of the poster.  His post
indicated that he was just trying to start it, and from his data it seemed
that the server was already started but just did not daemonize.  Thusly, no
debugging is probably needed- he just needs to start it properly- and why
reinvent the wheel and write another script to do it? =)

Note that the user is using Red Hat 7.3 and so is most likely running 2.0.23
