Start/stop services by web interface

I thought to extend the actual Services page to enable start/stop, but there was no general consensus.
Probably there’s no real need to manually start/stop services.


Perhaps there`s not a huge need,
But even small, the need exist:

  • After change a configuration file.
  • To make a test.
  • To make a diagnostic…

ClearOS has this feature :smiley:


Another use case is find a service abnormally stopped and you’d like to start it and check the logs.
I don’t see it as a priority feature but could be handy


I agree, Having control over a service from the UI is better.
Take into account if you need to stop or start a service really quick.

in this case I won’t use UI…

debug can’t be made via web interface…

Debuging does not mean that i do not want to stop/start a service :smile:

Of course, but if you can test one or two things holding the mouse in one hand and the cup of coffee in the other hand… It`s better :smiley:


Ahaha this made me laugh a lot! :smiley: :smiley: :

usually no mouse is necessary here :wink:

Continuing the discussion from NethServer v7-alpha2:

To celebrate this great news, @alefattorini will offer the mug for our left hand :laughing:


Don’t tempt me, I may surprise you :wink:

Great job! This was indeed one missing feature that will help when “debugging”.
First see if the service has stopped and then restart and then read the logs :blush:

Thank you for your work guys!
