    Can anyone tell me how to create a user script? I tried to follow the wiki here (https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin.ng/wiki/User-scripts) but without luck...

    My goal is to have the swap file turn on anytime I reboot the router. I found instructions here:
    https://mydevtutorials.wordpress.com/2014/01/10/how-to-activate-swap-on-asus-rt-ac68u-router/

    But when I try these commands in Putty, nothing works. I got as far turning the swap on --- but I can't figure out the correct set of commands to get the " /jffs/scripts/post-mount " to automatically turn swap on.

    Can anyone help me? thank you!!

    This is mine.
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    swapon /tmp/mnt/<myUSB>/myswap.swp # Swap file created by amtm
    
    It is done when I created the swap file using the AsusWrt Merlin Terminal Menu.

    It allows installing other useful scripts as well/
