First find out what is the process running, or which process you want to kill if its causing any issue.

# ps aux | grep php

There should be output like

php 3486 0.0 0.1 4248 1432 ? S Nov1 0:00 /usr/bin/php -xxxxxxxxx
php 3492 0.0 0.5 13752 3936 ? Ss Nov1 0:00 /usr/bin/php

Now kill using pid
# kill 3486

You could also use command pidof
# pidof httpd

If you wish to kill all process running as php
# kill $(ps aux | grep 'php' | awk '{print $2}')

Killing zombie

#kill $(ps aux | awk '{ print $8 " " $2 }' | grep -w Z | awk '{ print $2 }')
