service: command not found


I need help here

Im trying to get my ftp server working (vsftpd) but when I type:

service vsftpd start

my terminal says:

-bash: service: command not found



I have tried this as 'su' and 'su -'. both didn't work.

Im using SUSE 10.0, can somebody help me?

where is the "service" command? Is it in a directory listed in $PATH?
If not, you either need to change PATH, or you can access the command by typing:
/dir/dir/..../service as an absolute pathname---or as the relative pathname from where you are.

example: suppose service is in /usr/local/ftp
you would run it by typing /usr/local/ftp/service
OR
cd /usr/local/ftp
./service

"./" means run command here (ie dont check PATH)

Suse does not use the "service" command. The only rpm based distros that use that command are Redhat/Fedora derivatives and Mandriva. Try doing,
Code:
#/etc/init.d/vsftpd start

In the SuSEs, there is a shortcut (a symbolic link to) every program at /etc/init.d. For example, for /etc/init.d/vsftpd there is a command rcvsftpd.

So, you type "rcvsftpd start".

regards,

Heh, thanks for solving my mysql problem

But I still have problems with VSFTPD...

there is no file that is called VSFTPD or looks like it...

I installed it by a .rpm from de SUSE CD.

What now?

Look in your /etc/init.d directory for any FTP startup scripts.

It might be launched via xinetd. Check /etc/xinetd.conf and the included directory. Also check the output of "chkconfig --list".

Also search on the Novell Cool solutions site. I am sure I read an article on that site about setting up vsftpd.
