ive noticed that apache can be started manually using the apachectl tool, even if it is not enabled in /etc/rc.conf. do many other daemons have this ability? i have a dev server that i would like to not have many things enabled in the rc.conf, but i would like an easy way to just start specific daemons when i need.


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.

But the scripts check rc.conf so they still have to be enabled in rc.conf unless you use forcestart...

box# grep pf_enable /etc/rc.conf
box# pwd
/etc/rc.d
box# ./pf start
box# echo pf_enable=\"YES\" >> /etc/rc.conf
box# grep pf_enable /etc/rc.conf
pf_enable="YES"
box# ./pf start
Enabling pf.
