Functions

Psst. Open beta.

Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:

  • » The open beta is running a copy of the database that will not carry over to the final version. Don't post anything you don't mind losing.
  • » If you wish to use your user account, you will probably need to reset your password.
Your feedback is appreciated via the form on the beta page. Thanks! -Jon & CLFU Team

Alternatives

There are 2 alternatives - vote for the best!

Terminal - Alternatives
ps ax| awk '/[h]ttpd/{print $1}'| xargs kill -9

Know a better way?

If you can do better, submit your command here.

What others think

if you remove the "u" option from ps, you can do it as follow:

ps ax| grep -v grep| grep httpd| awk {'print $1'}| xargs kill -9

Also, to make it simpler (YMMV), you can do away with those greps altogether:

ps ax| awk '/[h]ttpd/{print $1}'| xargs kill -9

or, if you have the procps package installed, you can do:

pkill -9 httpd

the YMMV command seems to be good and working. thanks

ps ax| awk '/[h]ttpd/{print $1}'| xargs kill -9
