How to use systemctl?

Hey, everyone,

How to start services on some systems that use systemd to manage services, such as ftp? Well, on such systems, if we try to start a service via /etc/init.d script, we may not be able to do that, because this script may not be filled by proper functions… I mean, start() and stop() functions for the service that we want. So, we have to move on systemctl command to start or stop a service.

For instance, if wanna start vsftpd, we can type:

# systemctl start vsftpd

..and if we want to stop it:

# systemctl stop vsftpd

The same way applies for other services that we want to run, such as sshd, httpd, etc.

That’s all for today,
see ya
