How do you stop/start/restart daemons/services on AsusWRT-Merlin?

Are there straightforward commands like 'service' or 'systemctl' transmission-daemon (example) stop|start etc?
Or do you use something like cockpit to manage services like that?

scMerlin addon does most of that.

Use the service command. But remember, this is not the same as the command you might find in a Linux distro. The syntax is roughly as follows (stop/start/restart _ name), but there is no documentation for which services are supported, or even what their names are. For that you need to search the forum for examples or look at the source code.
Code:
[email protected]:/# service restart_dnsmasq

Done.
Note that there is no syntax checking, so entering an invalid command will give no indication that it's failed.
Code:
[email protected]:/# service restart_bollocks

Done.

Okay, I'm trying scMerlin for now, otherwise rebooting the router is the last resort albeit tedious haha.
