Well, I think you have the wrong server installed. If you use the Classic
server, you don't have to worry about starting or shutting down, running as
application/service or any of that claptrap. Classic starts when an
application connects to it and shuts down when the application disconnects.

I'm sure that SS on Linux is not designed to be used as you are trying to
use it.
