Is your web server running unnecessary software? Page 5
It is a good idea to test your system after you've made major changes to make sure the correct programs start at boot time -- and the other programs aren't started. You could test it by rebooting, or stopping everything and then running the appropriate rc script that starts everything again, or by using init to change between modes (or runlevels).
(I am curious about what other superfluous services are installed by default. And, I am interested in examples of compromised security due to unneeded services installed by default. Also, have you noticed any dramatic performance changes since uninstalling unneeded services? Share your comments below.)
