I developed my site in tomcat and have uploaded it. I want to use it as my webserver and have configured it to work on port 80. I have also configured init.d to load tomcat on boot up. Everything works fine when I manually stop apache and start tomcat.

The problem is... Apache will load on boot up and try to use port 80 too. What is the best way to prevent this? Can I just rename httpd to httpdold in init.d? Will this throw errors? I don't want to uninstall apache, I just don't want it to start.

Thanks for any suggestions/help!

There are a couple of ways you can do this.

From a root shell prompt:
chkconfig httpd off --level 2345

Or, remove the symlink in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/ that starts httpd.

Or, the preferred method (unless you're deliberately avoiding the control panel because of your custom config) is to use the "services" section of the control panel and turn off autostart for httpd.
