Suse Linux doesn't recognise "service vsftpd stop" or "service vsftpd start".  How can I stop/start/restart vsftpd from the command line in Suse Linux 10?  I'm sick of rebooting!!

Hi Bloodrule,

You can use:
/usr/sbin/vsftpd &
killall vsftpd
to start and stop the server respectively

This is the proper way to do

/etc/init.d/service stop
                          start
                          status

The service command is for redhat Flavors

and the /etc/init.d/servicename start is matched for all linux and unix Flavors

/etc/init.d/vsftpd {start|stop|restart}

Maybe like that?

If I use /usr/sbin/vsftpd & I get a message saying standalone execution is not supported and that I must use xinetd.  Now what should I do?

(To ssvl:

If I follow your steps, namely,

/etc/init.d/service stop
                          start
                          status

I get a "service command not found" or similar message.)

To run it with xinetd, enable the service in the xinetd configuration file (/etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd) and then restart xinetd

In the end I used a mix of the answers (so I am splitting the points) and this worked, remembering this is Suse 10.0:

To stop: /etc/init.d/ killall xinetd
To start: /etc/init.d/ xinetd &
