Restarting mac service - newbie in the dark

The SugarCRM stack installed beautifully! The longest part was waiting for the download but there wasn’t a hitch at all to get it going. And it directed me to my homepage right away and I was up and running, learning how to use SugarCRM.

But then today my computer wanted to install a software update and restart itself so I let it.

Now, whenever I go to my bookmarked CRM page, this is what I get:

Safari can’t find the server.
Safari can’t open the page “http://xxxxxxx-imac.local:8080/” because it can’t find the server “xxxxxxxx-imac.local”.

I went to “System Preferences” and went to “Sharing” to see if the apache service was there and it isn’t. I assume all I need to do is restart the service.

Ideas guys?

I’m using Leopard 10.5.

Cheers and thanks for a fantastic product,

Ok, nevermind, I figured it out… I didn’t mention that I’m a recently migrated PC guy who’se new to mac so today I learned about using Terminal from another forum post.

Here’s the solution

1) Go to Applications -> Utillities

2) Startup Terminal

3) Type in the following then hit Enter:
$ cd /Applications/sugarcrm-5.1.0-0

4) Type in the following then hit Enter:
$ ./ start

...Looks like I gotta start boning up on Apple terminal commands, or do they call this stuff unix commands? – anyways – Still loving the product! Way to go guys!
