How to enable / disable service during startup in Fedora?


Firstly, check if the service can be managed by chkconfig, e.g. Apache httpd

# chkconfig --list httpd

httpd           0:off   1:off   2:off   3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

To disable the service during normal startup, use

# chkconfig httpd off

To re-enable it, use

# chkconfig httpd on --level 3,4,5
