The enable command serves for executing the service since the initialization if consists of one or more units or unit instances. This will create a set of symlinks, as encoded in the [Install] sections of the indicated unit files. the system manager configuration is reloaded (in a way equivalent to daemon-reload), in order to ensure the changes are taken into account immediately. 


sudo systemctl enable mysql.service

7. Command Disable:


sudo systemctl disable name_service.service
