Server Scripts

Server scripts work just like Package Scripts, but they only apply to server-related interceptor points, and they go in your server.json. If you have several servers in a folder with their own server-name.json files, the server scripts can be different per server.
The interception points which will fire a server script are:
  • preServerStart
  • onServerStart
  • onServerInstall
  • onServerInitialInstall
  • onServerStop
  • preServerForget
  • postServerForget
Read more about when these interception points fire here.
Configure server scripts like so in your server.json:
"onServerInstall":"cfpm list"

Ad-hoc server scripts

Just like package scripts, you can also create ad-hoc scripts for a given server. They are executed with the server run-script command. Define them as additional keys in the scripts block.
"name" : "My Server"
"myScript":"server log --follow"
And run them like so:
server run-script myScript

Running multiple commands

You can run several commands into a single one using &&. You can also do this by specifying an array of strings instead of a string like so:
"name" : "My Server",
"scripts" : {
"updateCode" : [
"server stop",
"!git pull",
"server start"
This can be much more readable for multiple commands. Note, this is functionality equivalent to using &&, which means any erroring command will stop execution.
