No, Sir!

Set the 'ServerName' directive globally to suppress this message root@testjail: # That's 3 commands to enter. Admittedly 2 more than on some OS that blindly starts any service you install, but 2 steps more logical and even a newbie can do this. What could be done is that pkg looks for rc scripts in a package, extracts the enable line and prints a message how to enable the script / daemon permanently. Like: - To start the script "apache24" once run "service apache24 onestart". - To start the script "apache24" at boot time run "sysrc apache24_enable=yes" - The script "apache24" has the following optional settings for /etc/rc.conf: apache24_profiles (str): Set to "" by default. Define your profiles here. apache24limits_enable (bool):Set to "NO" by default. Set it to yes to run `limits $limits_args` just before apache starts. apache24_flags (str): Set to "" by default. Extra flags passed to start command. apache24limits_args (str): Default to "-e -C daemon" Arguments of pre-start limits run. apache24_http_accept_enable (bool): Set to "NO" by default. Set to yes to check for accf_http kernel module on start up and load if not loaded. apache24_fib (str): Set an altered default network view for apache
