stop spigot without original command window access

  1. I'm running spigot on linux. If I have access to shell, but not the window session running it (like if I used the & command to make it run so I could close the session/window), how do I gracefully stop the server?

    I could kill the process, but I don't think that is generally a good idea.

    I am wanting to automate the process of checking for updates every so often and if there is one, stop the server and run with the new version.
