    Welcome here !!!!

    Apache can and should be started as a system service: start Yast - System - Runlevel, activate apache. But ......
    It's easier to install the 'yast2-http-server' package, and the LAMP webserver pattern. On a restart of Yast, you will have Yast - Network Services - HTTP server to configure apache.

    kTorrent is a user program. To autostart it on login, either create an autostart entry through Systemsettings - Advanced - Autostart, or (in KDE4, with session restore enabled, i.e. default) start kTorrent, logout, login and it will be restarted as a part of the session restore.
    I suggest you don' t make kTorrent run as a service.
