# squid3 and no start process

In ubuntu 14.04, I have installed squid3, can start/stop it (working fine) via:

service squid3 start|stop


But i do not see any squid* file in /etc/init.d/ and /etc/rc.d/. How is that possible ? How service command is working and finding a service ?

Thanks, Michal

squid3 does not have any file in /etc/init.d/

Service startup script file for squid is in :

/etc/init/squid3.conf


Different programs use different ways of starting up.
Not every program that you can start stop is going to be in /etc/init.d/.

• So - how can i control that script ? Where can i find it ? How service command is finding it ? Which directory is it searching ? I always believed "service" command was always looking only in /etc/init.d. If now what are the other dirs/files and how to control that ? – user2913139 Jan 23 '16 at 12:43
• @user2913139 You have just been told where the file is. /etc/init/squid3.conf – Ken Sharp Jan 26 '16 at 5:21
• @user2913139 i don't understand your question. you can control that script by using service command sudo service squid3 start|stop|restart what do you mean by control ? – Neil Jan 26 '16 at 5:37
