How to stop Oracle's Apache Server?

By HenryStinson ·
Oracle 9.2 installs Apache internet server by default. If one doesn't want it running, is there a way to safely stop it from reloading and running every time the machine (and Oracle server) starts up? Is Apache necessary for non-web software development that accesses Oracle?

On Windows I presume?

Depends on the OS, but I'll take a guess that you are talking about Windows NT/2000/XP, since most UNIX users would need to poke around their /etc/init.d directory or similar. On Windows NT/2000/XP,etc, the Apache web server is running as a service called "OracleOraHome92HTTPServer". You can stop the server with:

> net stop OracleOraHome92HTTPServer

You can restart it with:

> net start OracleOraHome92HTTPServer

To prevent it from automatically starting everytime you boot up your PC, you can just go to "Control Panel"/"Services", (or "Adminstration Tools/Service" under XP), find that service, and change it from "Automatic" to "Manual", (or "Disable" if you want to prevent someone from starting it with "net start").

I did an article on all the services you can shut down if you didn't need them on Windows, if you are just running a local database for your own development, you only need one service, "OracleServiceORCL", (assuming ORCL is the SID).
