In Ubuntu, stopping Apache is done by :

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop


From the System menu, select Services. (Enter your password if asked.) Uncheck
"Web Server (apache2)".

As another note, the root user is disabled by default. The correct way to
perform administrative functions is from "sudo" or the graphical interface.
