Also, if you want to check/start/stop LightPayCoin , run one of the following commands as root:

Ubuntu 16.04:

systemctl status LightPayCoin #To check the service is running.
systemctl start LightPayCoin #To start LightPayCoin service.
systemctl stop LightPayCoin #To stop LightPayCoin service.
systemctl is-enabled LightPayCoin #To check whetether LightPayCoin service is enabled on boot or not.

Ubuntu 14.04:

/etc/init.d/LightPayCoin start #To start LightPayCoin service
/etc/init.d/LightPayCoin stop #To stop LightPayCoin service
/etc/init.d/LightPayCoin restart #To restart LightPayCoin service

You can’t perform that action at this time.
