VortexBox is a free operating system that turns a computer into an easy-to-use music server. It's possible to install bliss on a VortexBox to handle artwork, file locations and various tagging and organisational chores.
Sometimes you might find a reason that you want to restart bliss. The simplest solution is to restart the VortexBox, but that might not be desirable for a number of reasons.
To restart bliss without restarting VortexBox, you must first log into the VortexBox.
Once logged in, there are four commands that are of use. The first is:
service bliss status
This tells you whether bliss is currently running. Presumably it is... So issue:
service bliss stop
This stops bliss. You can verify this by trying to refresh the bliss user interface in your browser.
Now, time to start again:
service bliss start
After a few seconds (give it ten or so!) the bliss user interface should be accessible once more from your browser.
You can combine stop and start by issuing:
service bliss restart
Hope this helps!
