Disable Munin Without Uninstalling It on Cpanel Server

For some reason I want to disable Munin on my Cpanel server but without uninstalling it since I have made some changes which I don’t want to lose by uninstalling Munin.

Disable Munin service

So I start with disabling Munin service by running command:

Next, disable Munin from running on startup:

┬áDisable Munin’s Cron

Although the service has been disabled but there is a cron that runs every 5 minutes to do updates. This cron can be disabled by editing cron for user munin:

And then edit the cron line by adding “#” in front of the cron line to disable it

Save the changes and that’s it. Whenever I want to re-activate Munin I just reverse the changes that have been done above.
