Stop apache

Hello all. I have a Solaris 10 box and I want to install a later version of Apache than what ships with the OS.

Before I install the later version, I want to completely stop the current version of Apache (the httpd service) from running or from starting at boot time.

What is the best way to do this?

I have tried killing the processes, but they just come back under a differing PID.

Should I just delete every instance of Apache in the /etc directory (init.d, rc3, etc.)?

have a look at the command "svcadm" and "svcs".

That's where Solaris 10 SMF stands!!
