Disabling Answerbook2

Posted on 2005-04-28

Hi, Answerbook2 is running on one of our Sun boxes. One of our customers is requesting we disable it.  Is this something that starts with the inetd.conf? Can it be commented out?  If so, how?

    Answerbook2 is a webserver with Documentation. there is a script in /etc/rc2.d or /etc/rc3.d called something with "ab2" in it's name.

    first run that script with the parameter stop (which will stop the answerbook server) and then remove it out of that directory (it will still be in /etc/init.d in case you need it later)
