How to restart mail services?


Type in the line below after you are remotely in the server
/scripts/restartsrv service 
(replace service with the name of the service: exim, named, proftpd, httpd, etc.)

You can also restart a service through the system. It depends on the OS you are using as to where the files are located. Many distributions are located in /etc/rc.d/init.d/
To restart this way you can use:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/service
(replace service with the name of the service: exim, named, proftpd, httpd, etc)

You can use the following command to list all the services that can be restarted by the system:
cat /etc/rc.d/init.d/

If the service fails after restarting, you should check the error log. For example, to check Apache's error log, use:
tail /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log

The error log can be very useful for tracking down issues.
If you cannot determine the cause of the issue from the error log, you may check with our support engineers by submitting a support ticket to http://247livesupport.biz

Thank you.
