Stopping web server daemon


Hi!

I want to run the Xampp for Linux web server.

So, I installed it. When starting Xampp I get this output:

Starting XAMPP for Linux 1.6...
XAMPP: Another web server daemon is already running.
XAMPP: Starting MySQL...
XAMPP: Starting ProFTPD...
XAMPP for Linux started.


My questions:

How do I stop this other web server daemon?

How do I prevent it from autostart when my system boots up?

Google is your friend... (or, indeed, apache friends are )

If you got XAMPP via repositories, you'll have to do "whereis lampp" first - I'm not sure if Ubuntu puts XAMPP in its default place - I wouldn't have looked for it in /opt on Ubuntu.

For the autostart issue:

Thanks MoonMind !

Your link gives me information about how to stop Xampp.

My problem is, there is another web server deamon running before I start Xampp. This deamon was present on my system before I installed and started Xampp. This deamon interfers with Xampp. That's why I get the error message listed in blue above.

My questions once more:

How do I stop this other web server daemon?

How do I prevent it from autostart when my system boots up?

My problem is solved !

I found the solution by myself.

In Ubuntu you can administer the services which autostarts.

There is an item called Services in the gnome menu.

So I unticked the Apache service and restarted my system.

Now I could start Xampp and make it work.
