I am running CentOS which has Apache installed. It automatically starts up (script is in /etc/init.d). Since this is a standalone database server, I have no need for Apache to be running. How do I disable the startup? Just delete the file in /etc/init.d?

# chkconfig <servicename> off

Then to verify:

chkconfig --list | grep <servicename>

So probably chkconfig httpd off , you want to go read about runlevels in man init. The verification should return httpd 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off. If you want to stop it without restarting run /etc/init.d/httpd stop. All of these will need to be done with root privileges.
