WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

This document explains how to start, stop, and restart daemon services on H-Sphere servers under Linux and FreeBSD. Don't stop services with kill, as it may cause information loss!!!

Note: Starting with H-Sphere 3.1 you can also restart services from the Admin CP.

Below instructions don't apply to restarting DNS server (named) for Bind 8.x.

Starting Services.
Linux:
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/<SERVICE> start
FreeBSD:
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/<SERVICE> start

Stopping Services.
Linux:
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/<SERVICE> stop
FreeBSD:
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/<SERVICE> stop

Restarting Services.
Linux:
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/<SERVICE> restart
FreeBSD:
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/<SERVICE> restart

An alternative method - and often more appropriate - is to stop and then start the service:

Linux:
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/<SERVICE> stop
# sleep 10
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/<SERVICE> start
FreeBSD:
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/<SERVICE> stop
# sleep 10
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/<SERVICE> start

Note: While restarting H-Sphere, run killall -9 java after you stop and before you start CP.

Warning: Don't use kill -9 to stop named, as it may cause information loss!

Following are the commands to put in place of <SERVICE>:

H-Sphere (tomcat) httpdcp apachecp.sh
H-Sphere Database
