For example: squid


I tried google: no relevant results on the first pages


I tried this forum: a single unanswered question


After ps ax|grep squid, I tried  "/opt/local/etc/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.Squid/Squid.wrapper stop": error messages (except for the first time), and no effect


I tried launchctl stop org.macports.Squid: no effect at all


I tried killall squid: the main process is still running


I killed the main process: still running


I killed it with -9: no longer running, a new squid is starting


I don't think kill -9 is the proper way to restart services. What is it? In "tradiional" Linux, it's simply "/etc/init.d/whatever restart" (don't know about systemd)
