How to stop apache2, mysql from starting automatically as computer starts?


I recently upgraded to 18 (Cinnamon). While on 17.3, I setup LAMP so I could work on wordpress sites. But after setting it up, apache2 and mysql start up on boot. This isn't necessary, given that I'm only sometimes working on these sites. Now that I'm on 18, I'm finally getting around to disabling these services (so they don't start on boot).

In 17.x, it's my understanding that

would disable apache2 from running on boot (note that I never tried this when I had 17.3). And on 18, the command should be

But this doesn't work:

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl disable apache2 apache2.service is not a native service, redirecting to systemd-sysv-install Executing /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install disable apache2 insserv: warning: current start runlevel(s) (empty) of script `apache2' overrides LSB defaults (2 3 4 5). insserv: warning: current stop runlevel(s) (0 1 2 3 4 5 6) of script `apache2' overrides LSB defaults (0 1 6). initctl: Unable to connect...

I read about tools like Nagios, but I guess that’s a bit overkill for my situation.

Does anybody know how I can get started?

Easy. Look into setting up monitoring configurations with Monit. It’s a lightweight and easy to setup system monitoring tool that is very useful to setup in scenarios exactly as you describe; service goes down, restart it and alert me about it.

I’ve mainly use it for Apache web servers, but there are lots of examples of what can be done for other programs/software such as MySQL and such.

Setting up Monit.

The way I set it up is line this. First, install the Monit program itself like this:

sudo apt-get install monit

Once installed, then edit the config here; I prefer to use nano but feel free to use whatever text editor you prefer:

sudo nano /etc/monit/monitrc

Adjust the default daemon values to check services every 60 seconds with a start delay of 120:

set daemon 60 with start delay 60

Then find the...

The main problem would be all that lampp stuff in /opt/ It does not take advantage of either the package manager or the process management tools. The latter is biting you right now the former will bite you when a security patch is needed. LAMPP installs things in non-standard places and in some cases even adds redunant, conflicting pieces. It might be ok on a Windows system, where installation is hard, but it is one of the most difficult ways possile to deal with MySQL or Apache on Ubuntu.

My recommendation would be to step back and remove LAMPP and install using the Linux method:


sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install lamp-server^Mind the caret (^) it is part of the meta-package name.

That will get you Apache2, MySQL, and PHP. Working versions of Perl and Python are already installed on your system. Using that method then allows you to stay up to date automatically, including security updates, rather than having to fight manually with the system. It also...

We need to restart our Apache2 web server when we want to load new configurations from the configuration files. Restarting the web server to load configuration files is necessary as these configuration files are only read each time when the web server is in the process starting.

Note that the Apache web server does not need to be restarted on every configuration change; sometimes a simple reload will do. In any case, restarting won't hurt.

How to Restart Apache2 on Ubuntu?

To restart Apache2 on Ubuntu, we enter the following command in a terminal such as bash:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Of course, you most likely will need to be the superuser to do that so you might need to enter the following command and then your password when requested:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

This section discusses methods for starting and stopping the MySQL server.

Generally, you start the mysqld server in one of these ways:

Invoke mysqld directly. This works on any platform.

On Windows, you can set up a MySQL service that runs automatically when Windows starts. See Section, “Starting MySQL as a Windows Service”.

On Unix and Unix-like systems, you can invoke mysqld_safe, which tries to determine the proper options for mysqld and then runs it with those options. See Section 4.3.2, “mysqld_safe — MySQL Server Startup Script”.

On systems that use System V-style run directories (that is, /etc/init.d and run-level specific directories), invoke mysql.server. This script is used primarily at system startup and shutdown. It usually is installed under the name mysql. The mysql.server script starts the server by invoking mysqld_safe. See ...

This document explains how to install, configure and run Apache 2.4 under Microsoft Windows. If you have questions after reviewing the documentation (and any event and error logs), you should consult the peer-supported users' mailing list.

This document assumes that you are installing a binary distribution of Apache. If you want to compile Apache yourself (possibly to help with development or tracking down bugs), see Compiling Apache for Microsoft Windows.

The primary Windows platform for running Apache 2.4 is Windows 2000 or later. Always obtain and install the current service pack to avoid operating system bugs.

Apache HTTP Server versions later than 2.2 will not run on any operating system earlier than Windows 2000.

The Apache HTTP Server Project itself does not provide binary releases of software, only source code. Individual committers may provide binary packages as a convenience, but it is not a release...

BackupPC Documentation

This documentation describes BackupPC version 3.3.2, released on 25 Jan 2017.


BackupPC is a high-performance, enterprise-grade system for backing up Unix, Linux, WinXX, and MacOSX PCs, desktops and laptops to a server's disk. BackupPC is highly configurable and easy to install and maintain.

Given the ever decreasing cost of disks and raid systems, it is now practical and cost effective to backup a large number of machines onto a server's local disk or network storage. For some sites this might be the complete backup solution. For other sites additional permanent archives could be created by periodically backing up the server to tape.

Features include:

A clever pooling scheme minimizes disk storage and disk I/O. Identical files across multiple backups of the same or different PC are stored only once (using hard links), resulting in substantial savings in disk storage and disk writes.

Optional compression...
