    deleted my apache without stopping the server


    i'm a student trying to reinstall apache with ssl. however when i deleted my apache i forgot to stop the server and now it's BROKENNNNNNNNNnnnnnnn. can anyone help?

    i'm not the superuser of the server. however, i do remember the professor showing another student the killall command but don't really know how to use it after reading the man page.

    I guess it depends on the name of the service used to start apache.

    try ps aux | grep apache

    and if nothing try
    ps aux | grep httpd

    surely one of those will show you the running process'
    then you can killall -9 apache
    or httpd, depending on your situation. you could also kill -9 <pid#> and enter the process ID # found from ps aux
