You need and init script. Grab the one from the Debian package, for
example.  I suggest you grab the full debian package source and also
check the postinst script for an implementation of a script that does
version upgrade the proper way, i.e., without downtime. Otherwise
you'll have to send the correct signals to the running process in the
correct order.
