Problem with Parrot OS

Hello everyone

I Have a relatively big problem with Parrot os...

Today I started my OS and wanted to start the postgresql service( i have already installed it) but my terminal returned a bash: service : command not found...

I looked for it in the /sbin folder but it's not there
Anyone can help me please?

P.S. Parrot OS like Kali is based on debian (just in case someone doesn't know it)

Thanks

Postgresql service is not installed. Install it .

i already have...but postgresql is not the problem...the command service itself is

Try doing it as root. it worked out for me.

sudo -i

and then the command you want to enter.

-Phoenix750

When i type sudo -i service postgresql start nothing happens...it's like the service command vanished

If you try to do a updatedb then a locate postgresql it might help you to find where you installed it.

As i previously said...postgresql is just an example and is not the problem
The COMMAND "SERVICE" itself is

Oh, at that point i'm not sure what to do, sounds like a pretty deep issue, maybe a full reinstall?

Yeah It looks like it's the only solution or i could use the path /etc/ini.d/
everytime i need a service
Btw thanks for your answers!
