Changes in CentOS 7

Hi Team,

I have installed Centos 7 and I feel everything is totally changed.

I am able to see only 3 folders under /etc/init.d/......where as earlier versions have many other init scripts.

I tried installed Minimal & full installation, both have the same situation.

empty init.d in CentOS7

In the init.d folder there should be a README file. If you read it you will learn that RHEL and CENTOS have gone to a different startup system and scripts are no longer required in init.d.

I have used startup scripts for custom services, and they still work from init.d, but the distro packages no longer use it by default.

Silly, if you ask me. But no one did.

Use the system and service commands to manipulate startup for services you once controlled using the init.d scripts.

Standard init system in Centos 7 is called systemd which is compatible with older init system called sysvinit.
For systemd you can use command "systemctl" in order to control services. "service" command will still work though.
