Starting servers


Hello Guys,

I am a newbie ti FreeBSD and am having a little difficulty. I have a couple of simple questions and they are:

1) How to start services in FreeBSD. I normally use RedHat and there I type
service **** start
in order to start a service. What is the equivalent command in FreeBSD?

2) In Linux, using 'ntsysv' we can configer which services are started during boot. What is the equivalent command under FreeBSD?

I hope these are not too silly & my thanks to all those who answer.

If its so common how come you don't know it or can't find the answer?

Being antagonistic towards the people who volunteer their time to help you isn't going to get you answers friend.

Google is your friend.

Use the search Luke!

(Noticing a recurring theme there?)

apachectl start|stop|graceful

most system stuff is started in
/etc/rc
the standard for non OS servers is to start them in
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/<example.sh>
ie
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql.sh stop | start

it is a very organized OS
man hier
read the handbook it covers 99.9% of easy questions and 98% of not so easy.

cheers
