In Ubuntu, you can manage services using the systemctl command, which is part of the systemd system and service manager. Here are some common commands for managing services:

  1. To view the status of a service, use the following command:systemctl status <service_name>
  2. To start a service, use the following command:systemctl start <service_name>
  3. To stop a service, use the following command:systemctl stop <service_name>
  4. To restart a service, use the following command:systemctl restart <service_name>
  5. To enable a service to start automatically at boot time, use the following command:systemctl enable <service_name>
  6. To disable a service from starting automatically at boot time, use the following command:systemctl disable <service_name>
  7. To reload the configuration of a service without stopping it, use the following command:systemctl reload <service_name>


Note: replace <service_name> with the name of the service you want to manage.
