Ubuntu is built on Debian, so maybe googling on that would yield better 

Anyway, all Unbuntu's start/stop scripts are in /etc/init.d/ so restarting 
apache (for example would be:
/etc/init.d/apache restart

For simplicity, I usually symlink /etc/init.d/ to something like /service.  
Then when I want to restart a process it's just:
/service/apache restart

Which probably looks a little more familiar to you (coming from 
Mandriva/RedHat etc).


Would you people stop playing these stupid games?!?!?!!!!
