restart service over ssh

I recently ran in to trouble restarting neo4j over ssh

here’s the fix:

From machine calling neo4j host

ssh -f [email protected]$HOST 'sh -c "( (nohup sudo /etc/init.d/neo4j-service restart 2>&1 >output.file </dev/null) & )"'

Target Machine Sudoers

Replace “someuser” with whatever user name you want

someuser ALL=NOPASSWD:/etc/init.d/neo4j-service *

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
