Is there a "recommended way" to disable a service in Debian? (Disable = The service is installed but won't start automatically when the machine boots.)
I know that you can
update-rc.d -f service remove (which basically removes the links in
rcX.d), but doing this you lose the sequence number of the service (
SXXservice, with XX being the sequence number), making life harder when you want to re-enable the service. I also know that I can just rename the links in
rcX.d so that they don't start with
S (or move them somewhere else), but I wondered if there is some "Debian-approved best-practice" way to do this.
