View Full Version : [SOLVED] Service Command for Ubuntu

October 27th, 2009, 04:28 PM
I've always wanted to have service command just like Fedora has for restarting, starting or stoping services. So I've finally figured out the way. What I do is add the following command in my .bash_aliases file, you can also just use .bashrc file instead.

# Service for Ubuntu
function service() {
sudo /etc/init.d/$1 $2;

Now just use it like this;

service samba restart

Original command is;

sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart

I hope this helps some one too ;)
