Can I run sudo service restart on stash?

Given that stash is run as a service, a question came up - can we run "sudo service stash restart" rather than the bin/stop-stash.sh bin/start-stash.sh scripts as documented here:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/STASH/Starting+and+stopping+Stash

The question is - will this action effectively do the same thing?

Hi Mike, if you have installed Stash using our Linux installed and selected the option to create a service, then you should have a bash script like the following one at /etc/init.d

#!/usr/bin/env bash
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          stash
# Required-Start:
# Required-Stop:
# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop:      0 1 6
# Short-Description: Start Stash daemon at boot time
# Description:       Start Stash daemon at boot time
### END INIT INFO

# THIS SCRIPT HAS BEEN CONFIGURED TO RUN AS PART OF RUN LEVELS 2 TO 5
# IF YOU WISH TO CHANGE THIS CONFIGURATION YOU WILL HAVE TO DO IT MANUALLY

start() {
    ./start-stash.sh
}

stop() {
    ./stop-stash.sh
}

# STASH Linux service controller script
cd /opt/atlassian/stash/install/bin

case "$1" in
    start)
        start
        ;;
    stop)
        stop
        ;;
    restart)
        stop
        start
        ;;
    *)
        echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop}"
        exit 1
        ;;
esac

The default name of this service is atlstash, so it means that you can call it using service atlstash restart and it'll work exactly the same way as the scripts in this doc.

If you execute sudo service atlstash restart it means that you'll use the root user. It's not necessarily a problem, you just need to pay attention to the file system permission on Stash file and folders.

I hope it helps.

Cheers
