Question about 'services' (httpd) in redhat 8.0
Hey Guys and Gals (mostly guys im sure.)
I was looking in the Redhat documentation and it said in order to start the httpd daemon i had to type:
service httpd start
I tried this and got 'bad command' error.
So i tried to type: 'locate service'
It found nothing. So I eventually found (in Gnome) a program called redhat-services-config which is a graphical applet for Xwindows that allows me to start, stop and restart daemons. So thats great, however, the reason i am using linux is to teach myself how to administer a linux box so i feel using xwindows is really cheating myself.
So heres my question. what command do i use to start and stop services. and if service is it, where is it on my box and how would i install it? (you'd think it was in by default.)
