Since I can directly access the shell of my ipfire system thru vga/monitor display, I’ve disabled sshd and httpd/apache services in order to uphold a high security stance on my setup and I’ve done this by performing
bash# chown -x /etc/init.d/[two services I mentioned]
Now my problem with this is that I always get this annoying notice message filled with words in red and effectively pauses the execution of startup and shutdown of my IPFire machine.
So yeah, I want to know if there is a cleaner way of doing this? I know the services at /etc/init.d are symlinked to the rc something directory and I have no idea how to properly disable services in there.
What I am doing is not recommended to be done for an average use-case because generally, the whole point of IPFire is to use the Web-UI to manage ALL the configuration and there is no particular need to go to the command line in the console except for advanced use-cases.
