I'd like to disable mini-http on boot.

sudo /etc/init.d/mini-httpd disable

The above command does not exist. Only start|stop|restart|force-reloadoptions are available and these only stop the service till the next reboot.

I am using Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS.

You could try sudo update-rc.d mini-httpd disable OR sudo update-rc.d remove and restore to defaults with

sudo update-rc.d mini-httpd defaults

You can use -f flag to force the changes.

/etc/default/mini-httpd has an option START=1. Set it to 0 and it will not automatically start.

From command line

nano /etc/default/mini-httpd

Change the 1 to a 0. Hit control-x and save.
