Full Version: Stopping Sendmail & Apache At Startp ( Post #1)

rwelch
I have RedHat 7.0 (server installation) installed. Both sendmail and apache are started automatically at boot time. I would like to start them manually when I need them. What do I need to do to stop them from being started at startup.

Many thanks

the easiest way is to type: setup
at a command line...
then select services configuration....
something like that.....

then scroll down the list of services
and uncheck httpd, or http....
i think its httpd though.....
and uncheck sendmail....

there is anotherway:
open Sysv-init from system menu or something likethat...
then delete that service from that list

I tried the ntsysv utility, however it would not let me delete or insert a asterisk in any of the boxes (I was logged in as root)

I also tried services but had the same problem. I get a list of services with a box like this
[*] sendmail, but I cannot delete the asterisk, or insert one. I am logged in as root. What keys should I use to delete/insert the asterisk
chrisw
use the space bar to insert or remove an asterick
not the delete key if that was what you were using
