This article will guide you on how to start, stop, and restart the #network service on different Linux distribution like Ubuntu, #Debian, Linux Mint, and CentOS 8. Moreover, you can troubleshoot the network #error through the #NetworkManager tool on #CentOS 8.
Please don't stop services if you have a remote ssh connection that may create a problem.
Restarting networking on a desktop machine will cause dbus and a bunch of #service to stop and never be started again, usually leading to the whole system being unusable.
To restart a Linux service:
1. Linux provides fine-grained control over system services through #systemd, using the systemctl command.
2. To verify whether a service is active or not, run this command: sudo systemctl status apache2.
3. To stop and restart the service in Linux, use the command: sudo systemctl restart SERVICE_NAME.
