How do I disable Apache running because I can't get it down since I cannot run this sudo apachectl stop. It will give me this

/System/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.httpd.plist: Could not find specified service

but when I run this httpd -v then it will give me this

Server version: Apache/2.4.18 (Unix)
Server built:   Feb 20 2016 20:03:19

To my mind, if the server run, of course it will consume memory and space. Why is it running automatically?

    In Terminal, what's the output of ps auxw | grep [h]ttpd? If it's nothing then httpd isn't running. The output of httpd -v is just doing as it's supposed to, report the version information and that does not mean the service is up and constantly running, only that httpd executed and terminated after reporting the version info. Also, did you look in Activity Monitor to see if httpd is running? – user3439894 May 8 '16 at 1:51
