Reference - Linux Service Script v7

  • A service script allows the PEM server to start, stop or restart the server if necessary when performing configuration management, certificate management, or other administrative tasks.

  • The Postgres server on which the PEM server resides must contain a service script. Postgres installers in Windows generated by EDB create a service script for you; if you are using a Postgres server from another source like native packages, you must provide a service script.

    On CentOS or RHEL 7.x or 8.x, the service script resides in the /usr/lib/systemd/system directory.

  • Service scripts are platform-specific.
