Default simple shutdown script

Hey, I'm trying to make a script to be run by VirtualMin to stop my xbtt torrent tracker when the server is shutdown/restarted.

I have a script called stop-xbtt.sh and in it I have
Code:
#!/bin/sh
cd /home/xbtt/Tracker/
kill 'cat xbt_tracker.pid'
now, I can't get the kill 'cat xbt_tracker.pid' to work. All I wanted it to do is read the PID number in the xbt_tracker.pid (which works with cat) and pass it onto kill

PS. Server is Ubuntu 8.04

Try
Code:
kill cat xbt_tracker.pid
instead of
Code:
kill 'cat xbt_tracker.pid'

How would I set this up if I wanted it to execute before the server is brought down automatically?

why not write a real initrd script and then add it to the default runlevels?

kill sends TERM signal so there is a possibility not to kill your process.

I use pkill command without knowing the PID of the process and after a sleep i use pkill -9 just to be sure.

something like this:

Code:
pkill apache
sleep 3
pkill -9 apache
