In Window$ OS, we can check running services and its status by going to Services console. (Start > Run > services.exe)
Similarly, to access running services info and status under Linux via BASH / Shell, we need to install ‘sysv-rc-conf’
aptitude install sysv-rc-conf
Below screenshot show the output of sysv-rc-conf command displaying status of service for all running levels (1-6) and startup (S)
As you can see in the screenshot to start a service use ‘+’ and to stop a service use ‘-‘. To enable or disable service to run at startup goto the respective service’s ‘S’ column and then use ‘Space Bar’.
