Starting services in terminal

I am using opensuse 12.1,I have installed apache2 and mysql and I am trying to start apache service and mysql service by entering command
“rcapache2 start” and “rcmysql start” respectively. It takes more time and dont gives any response on the terminal why this is so?

I am also trying starting these services from yast2 “Service Runlevel” to enable perticular service enable.

Please anyone can tell me how to start these services???

  • start:
systemctl start apache2.service
systemctl start mysql.service

  • stop:
systemctl stop apache2.service
systemctl stop mysql.service

  • check:
systemctl status apache2.service
systemctl status mysql.service

  • permanently enable:
systemctl enable apache2.service
systemctl enable mysql.service
