Thanks for the pointers. Ubuntu doesn't allow logging in as root by default so I tried something
similar using sudo -i (which moves you into root's environment). On Ubuntu, the way to start
a service is "/etc/init.d/servicename start" where "servicename" in this case would be "trafficserver".
Unfortunately, the returned no result whatsoever and failed to launch the service.

It seems to me that this product is better supported on the RedHat side and this is on a Dell
server, which also has better support in RedHat, so I think I'm simply going to reinstall
and start from scratch :-(

Thanks again for your help.
