Assuming an all-in-one server (rather than a TWO_TIER setup), all of the following components need to be shut down: aleph, apache, ARC -- if the server is running ARC-- and oracle. They could be shut down individually, manually, using the $alephe_root/aleph_shutdown, the $alephe_root/apache/bin/apachectl, and util o/1/2 -- for Oracle, with Oracle being shut down last.

The command to execute the init.dat for shutting down the server is, as root:
and, for starting it:
