As a new comer from Windows OS, I wonder how to start/stop/restart a service on Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 ?(it's straight forward on Windows using its Task Manager).
I tried Activity Monitor, but it only kills processes, it does not start them.
I tried the command:
launchctl stop *servicename* and then the command
launchctl start *servicename* after I hit return on keyboard after each command the terminal does not show any message so it must be successfull, but when I check out the result in Activity Monitor, it sounds that this command is useless because it has no effect on that process in Activity Monitor.
p.s. I'm sure I typed the right name of the process, I grabbed the name from the list using the command :
EDIT: (ps auxwww command output lines)
