SCO OS 507 and apache - SCO

Why, when I install a Host system (507) with no networking, does it try (and fail) to start apache when booting? regards -Rob robatwork at mail dot com...

    Rob,

    it should "stick" to localhost, even if you don't have a network card
    installed and configured.

    Best,

    I'd rather it didn't run at all. Why does it bother?
    In fact, why does it start TCP services as well? I haven't asked for them, don't
    want them, don't need them etc.......

    It starts apache to serve the doentation to you. Without apache
    running, you can read man pages but not the guide books and other
    non-man doc materials. If you omit the doentation during
    installation, I think it may also omit the doc server.

    Amusing how within two days we can have one person questioning the
    sanity of an OS distribution that allows itself to be installed without
    functioning TCP/IP, and a second person complaining that the omission of
    TCP/IP isn't complete enough. ;-}

    You can disable the rc script that starts apache. Looks like if you
    run:

    /etc/apache disable

    then the script that starts apache will be disabled. A second script
    starts it for docview; that is /etc/docview (linked to
    /etc/rc2.d/S95docview), and it doesn't seem to have a "disable" option.
    You could disable it by sticking an "exit 0" at the top, or by renaming
    the file in /etc/rc2.d (as e.g. "s95docview" -- the lowercase 's' will
    cause it to be skipped during startup).

    You could disable the TCP startup by putting an "exit 0" at the top of
    /etc/tcp (linked to /etc/rc2.d/S85tcp). But I'm not sure whether OSR507
    Host System will function without at least the loopback TCP/IP enabled.
    You can try it and see whether you get licensing problems -- if you get
    messages along the lines of "sco_pmd died", re-enable it...

    You can't appease all of the people all of the time....!

    Anyway thanks very much for the advice - will have a play with that later.
