 Service equivalent in FreeBSD?
Author: el_kab0ng 
Date:   27-06-05 00:56

It's been awhile since I've posted here...been really busy with life and work.

Hardware costs have finally come down to the point where I can rebuild my mail and web servers. (Dell has SC420 servers for 249!!!!!!!)

Anyway, I'm going with FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE (upgrading from 4.4) and have the box in a transitional state (1 for 1 swap).

I've been forced into the RHEL world with my job, so I've had alot of exposure with RHEL 4.0 and SELinux. Fortunately I'll never forget my roots and stay with FreeBSD for all MY servers.

I will say that since I've been exposed to RHEL, there's really only been one feature I've really liked above all else. Being able to stop/start/restart services by issuing a "service whatever stop|start|restart" has really made things alot easier when working with services.

Am I too dumb to realize BSD finally has something like that? Or are we all still relegated to kill -HUP'ing our PID's until someone on the development team incorporates that into FreeBSD?

Let us know if that help.

Also, many service scripts, if not all, install to /usr/local/etc/rc.d/. For example:

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/z-bacula.sh restart

will restart bacula.
