there's no fixed rules about what these things are, but they're broadly logical. Apaches config file is usually httpd.conf, BIND's called named etc. so it does change for some specific servicess. In general, you need to look at the docs...

In RHEL system services can be managed/checked using service utility. See:
For detailed information, you should follow the corresponding manual pages of services. For instance:
Also you can check a service or process:
Code:
~$ ps -Af | grep <servicename>
