    How to change lubuntu runlevel at Boot

    I'm running a local apache server on a puny old laptop which has a lubuntu OS.
    I don't need a GUI. Can I get the laptop to boot up in runlevel 3 (but still starting up apache)?

    Google searches and YT keep mentioning a file called inittab but lubuntu doesn't seem to have one

    p.s. I'm new to Linux but was a reluctant sys admin for a couple of UNIX boxes BITD

    The only file in my /etc/init/ directory is a file called whoopsie.conf
    It seems to contain stuff about system crashes.

    Since current Ubuntu releases use systemd shouldn't systemctl be the tool of choice ?
    According to the manual page for systemctl 'set-default' sets the default target to boot to, so
    Code:
    systemctl set-default multi-user.target
    should get you a fully functional command line system as the default.
