You can use "twistd -y filename.py" to load a Python script and
daemonize the application it describes. Run "twistd --help" for more
options; you might take a look at the "--no_save" and the
"--nodaemon" options, for future reference.

It bears mentioning that in your example, the application object isn't
really doing _anything_, because you're bypassing it when you start the
reactor directly. This application object is what "twistd -y" uses to

Below is what you'd need to change in your script to make this work.

root = static.File(pathToSiteRoot)
application = service.Application("web")
sc = service.IServiceCollection(application)
site = server.Site(root)
# --- snip ---
webserver = internet.TCPServer(port, site)

Let us know if this is what you're looking for.
