Many programs in Linux run as daemons or services, meaning they run (almost) all the time. These include things like network, email, and ftp servers, program scheduling services (cron), etc.

There are two established conventions for starting and stopping these services (aside from starting them automatically at bootup and stopping them automatically at shutdown).

This page is to record those two conventions and related stuff.

In general, the two approaches look like:

  • /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd.init stop
  • service bla, bla, bla stop
