Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

what I want to do is kill all httpd procceses at once,
so if I do "ps -ef|grep httpd" I get 5 or 6 httpd proccesses
I want to kill them all, so all other processes stay, only httpd goes away, normaly if you do one by one you can use the pid , but I want to do it in one command.
like for example :
"ps -ef|grep httpd|kill -9 httpd but this does not works"
I need only to kill the Sesions, not the whole httpd deamon, so I need to keep apache runing, but kill all active sessions. So the webserver needs to be accesable. if I do the command wich you give, than it will kill the whole webserver.
You should use the apachectl cmd, it's designed to shutdown/start apache cleanly and correctly.
There's usually no pt trying to only kill the sessions, as Apache will automatically fork off new sessions to replace the dead ones.
You need to explain why you are trying to do this...
