Take a look at /usr/local/etc/rc.d You will see several scripts belonging to server applications you installed. Each one of these scripts can start or stop the service. For example: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache.sh start /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache.sh stop When you put something into rc.conf it is actually this script that is executed, so every daemon that can be enabled in rc.conf can also be started/stopped using those scripts. Daemons coming with the base system have there scripts in the /etc/rc.d directory. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
