System Services on CentOS 7
July 16th, 2014

Centos 7 is merely driven by systemd – therefore things work slightly different than in Version 6.5.
Also the GUI completely lacks the /usr/sbin/servicesconf that once used to be there…

Well, this example shows how to enable MariaDB and Apache2 HTTPd on startup.

In order to get a list of all services and their current state:

systemctl list-unit-files

While one can grep the output (or scroll with shift + page up/down):

systemctl list-unit-files | grep mariadb
systemctl list-unit-files | grep httpd

In order to enable the services required:

chkconfig mariadb on
chkconfig httpd on
