How to Start/Restart/Stop the ftpd Service

Hello,

This is the third article on how to start/restart/stop services (1st: httpd, 2nd: mysqld, 3rd:ftpd). I have added two different commands per action, if one does not work, try the next one. You will need SSH root access.
Difficulty level: Easy

1. Establish a SSH connection and login as a root user.

The commands are as follows:

Start it:

/etc/init.d/ftpd start
OR
service ftpd start

Restart it:

/etc/init.d/ftpd restart
OR
service ftpd restart

Stop it:

/etc/init.d/ftpd stop
OR
service ftpd stop

2. Execute any of the needed commands, if one does not work, try the other one.

That is all there is to it! If you need an article on how to start/restart/stop any other service, please let me know.

Best Regards,
