I installed redis-server on Ubuntu 16.04 using apt.

It seems to auto-start at every boot-up by default

I don't like this, so I've tried the below commands:

sudo update-rc.d -f redis-server remove  # remove auto-start service
ls /etc/rc*.d | grep redis               # check service list, it prints nothing

It looks fine but redis-server is still auto-starting at every booting up.

Any suggestions?


Use the following command to disable the Redis server's service:

sudo systemctl disable redis-server
  • Thank you, it solves my issue. what is different between update-rc.d and systemctl command? – user3523935 Apr 4 '17 at 7:56
