Stoping apache after rm all the files associated with it.

Recommended Posts

Ok, I was having problems with a certain setup of Apache so I deleted everthing to do with it except the www folder where the website was stored. Now I just realised the Apache service is still running. How can I stop it now that i have deleted the apachectl exe?

if you\'re using a unix flavor, use the following:


ps aux |grep httpd

get the process id and replace $pid with it

kill $pid

if that doesn\'t kill it...

kill -9 $pid



use top to kill it


if you\'re using windows NT based(XP,2000), I believe there should be info under services.msc (use from run)
