    How to stop LMS on a Pi / access Control Panel

    A dumb question - how do I stop LMS on the Pi? I can't find the control panel that I'd use in Windows to do this, and I'd rather not just terminate the process. I am trying to copy an old copy /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/prefs over and it seems prudent to stop LMS first.
    SB3 -> Quad 909 -> Quad Electrostatic speakers, Quad 405 -> TBI subwoofer
    3 x SB3s + SB Radio
    LMS on Raspbian on a Pi4
    Rotel RSP1068 surround processor, Quad 707 -> B&W surround

    which OS is the LMS running on ?

    pCP has a stop button on the LMS Tab page

    If using Rapberry pi os, open a terminal and type

    sudo service logitechmediaserver stop [status, start, restart]

    or

    sudo /etc/init.d/logitechmediaserver stop

    there is one for sytemctl as well, but have never used that

    Raspbian.
    "sudo service logitechmediaserver stop" did the job perfectly. Thanks very much..

    If you are running Material, it has "Shutdown" and "Restart" options when you're in Server Settings - Click the three dots on the top right of the screen.

    It does but if shutdown stops LMS how would you start it again?
