This should stop and disable apache:
systemctl stop httpd
systemctl disable httpd

You assume that config for the target domain is in descriptively named file.

@Kawa: Your question is:
How to modify via command line the content that httpd serves?

Your "putty" reveals that you are using command line.
The "VPS" is irrelevant and this is CentOS Forum ...

tunk's "Stop the server" gets the job done, but for finer control you have to know how httpd is configured.
On CentOS the base config is in /etc/httpd and data in /var/www (by default).
Apache's documentation should help.

If you set this up in the first place then the answer would be "do the reverse of what you did to install it".
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
