Stopping and Restarting the Database Server on macOS

If you installed the database server as a daemon using the Configuration Assistant, you can stop it and restart it using the launchctl command line tool. If you installed it using Service Launcher, you can stop it and restart it manually in Service Launcher.

If you have installed the link server so as to be able to handle Windows clients, stopping and restarting it may also be necessary for the intended purpose.
