Starting application daemons

I put things into rc.conf, I don't know if that's bad practice, but that's
what I do. rcstart, rcstop, rcrestart for the daemons. If that doesn't
work, you can try the older way of more directly referencing it.
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/servicename status|start|restart|stop or /etc/rc.d/
