Missing Systemctl

when logging in to the console I get command not found for service and systemctl.
System is a IPFire 2.27 (x86_64) - Core Update 160 did any thing change ?

How to restart services when not possible through the webui ?

Systemctl is part of SystemD suite. IPFire is a linux from scratch derived linux which uses SystemV and not SystemD to manage its init scripts, therefore to start or stop a service you have to use the old fashion:

/etc/init.d/$service start

where $service means whatever service you want to start or stop.


okay thought it is different somehwere in the wiki

thanks for the reply
