This article covers the basics of service management in Linux Mint 20. Linux provides fine-grained control over system services through systemd, using the systemctl command. Services can be turned on, turned off, restarted, reloaded, or even enabled or disabled at boot.
The basic syntax for using the systemctl command is:
$ systemctl [<em>command</em>] [<em>service_name</em>]
Typically, you'll need to run this as a superuser with each command starting with sudo.
How to Restart a Service ?
To stop and restart the service in Linux, use the command:
$ sudo systemctl restart <em>SERVICE_NAME</em>
After this point, your service should be up and running again. You can verify the state with the status command.
