Unhappy Total N00b question


I know this is a total n00b question, but please help. I usually ran my server on RedHat 8, but got tired of messing with it, so I installed slack 9...how in the heck do you get apache to start? I want it to load at start up as well as an FTP daemon, and SSHD...but I am used to the "Services" gidget from RH... I have know idea how to start things from terminal or KDE 3.1. I know that Apache is installed...just don't know how to load the daemons...please let me know!!

try:
apachectl start

You may need a pat before apachectl eg:
/usr/local/apache/apachectl restart

If it is not in your path you can create a link to it which will make it easier.

Take a look at the file /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd it explaines how to do it.

install telnet-server package on the system, and edit /etc/xinetd.d/telnet and change the "disable = yes" line, and restart xinetd

Do I need to download the telnet server package or should it be on my disk? If it is on the disk then it is already installed as when I loaded Slack I chose the "Install Everything" option. So, everything it has to offer is on there.

What's up with that is that Slackware uses /etc/inetd.conf -- if you want telnet, open inetd.conf and uncomment the line that starts the telnet server. It is disabled by default because it is a security risk, but if you need it, you need it.
