Management Script

RStudio management tasks are performed using the rstudio-server utility (installed under /usr/sbin). This utility enables the stopping, starting, and restarting of the server, enumeration and suspension of user sessions, taking the server offline, as well as the ability to hot upgrade a running version of the server.

For example, to restart the server you can use the following command:

$ sudo rstudio-server restart

Note that on some systems (including RedHat/CentOS 5 and SLES 11) the sudo utility doesn’t have the /usr/sbin directory in it’s path by default. For these systems you can use a full path to the management script. For example:

$ sudo /usr/sbin/rstudio-server restart
