some services down after a change of runlevel


I've switched my server to runlevel 3 since I only ssh to it, but when I boot it some services like https, vsftpd are no turned on by default like it was when x started

how could I change that?

Hi,

There are a few ways to do it. Probably the easiest is by booting into runlevel 3 and then running authconfig at the terminal. That will show you the services and what is enabled on boot for runlevel 3.

I personally use chkconfig to enable / disable my services, for example chkconfig --level 345 named on That command will turn on named (dns) in runlevels 345.

oh! and how about a change of resolution even in runlevel3? so that the terminal would look nicer

I don't think it's possible but maybe you guys know a trick

Hi,

I don't know if it possible, I've never needed it changed. Maybe one of the other guys know
