managing daemons under Ubuntu linux

Hi folks,

I just installed Ubuntu 4.10. So, I'm trying to install all the apps I frecuently use and could not do without! If I am able to get them all up and running, I will switch to Ubuntu for now! So far I like it a lot! (BTW, I'm switching from Mandrake).

I'm new to Debian architecture at all. Here is one key trouble I just ran into:

Under Mandrake, I'm able to easily manage my daemons with the "service <daemons' name> [start|stop|restart]" command. For example, "service proftpd start"

How can I manage my daemons under Ubuntu? I just installed proftpd, but I have not been able to get it started.

I hope any of you can shed some light on this newbie, who is trying to move onto this promising Debian-based distribution!

Thanks for your help!

Don't know for sure in Ubuntu, but in Debian the scripts responsible with the (re)starting/stopping the daemons reside in /etc/init.d. So, you can issue '/etc/init.d/daemon_name start/stop/restart' to achieve the desired effects. If you want to add/remove daemons in the runlevels you can use the 'update-rc.d' command.
