I'm reading the Wiley Raspberry Pi User guide (chapter 9) and it covers installation of LAMP stack. It tells me that the installation process launches the MySQL and Apache daemons in the background. What I'd like to know is if its easy to kill/stop them if I don't want the web server running? And equally is it easy to start them at will?
Perhaps an unorthodox request but if someone can spare a minute explain, I'd appreciate it.
