       apache2 - Apache hypertext transfer protocol server

       apache2 [ -d serverroot ] [ -f config ] [ -C directive ] [ -c directive
       ] [ -D parameter ]

       apache2 [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -L ] [ -v ] [ -V ] [ -t ] [ -X ]

       apache2 is the Apache HyperText Transfer Protocol  (HTTP)  server  pro
       gram.  It  is  designed	to be run as a standalone daemon process. When
       used like this it will create a	pool  of  child  processes  to	handle
       requests.  To  stop it, send a TERM signal to the initial (parent) pro
       cess. The PID of this process is written to a file as given in the con
       figuration file.

       This  manual page only lists the command line arguments. For details of
       the directives necessary to configure apache2 see  the  Apache  manual,
       which   is  part  of  the  Apache  distribution	or  can  be  found  at
       http://httpd.apache.org/. Paths in this manual may  not	reflect  those
       compiled into apache2.

       -d serverroot
		   Set	the  initial  value  for  the  ServerRoot directive to
		   serverroot. This can be overridden by the  ServerRoot  com
		   mand   in   the   configuration   file.   The   default  is

       -f config   Execute the commands in the file config on startup. If con
		   fig	does not begin with a /, then it is taken to be a path
		   relative   to    the    ServerRoot.	  The	 default    is

       -C directive
		   Process  the  configuration directive before reading config

       -c directive
		   Process the configuration directive	after  reading	config

       -D parameter
		   Sets  a  configuration  parameter  which  can  be used with
		   ...  sections  in  the	 configuration
		   files to conditionally skip or process commands.

       -h	   Output a short summary of available command line options.

       -l	   Output a list of modules compiled into the server.

       -L	   Output  a  list  of directives together with expected argu
		   ments and places where the directive is valid.

       -S	   Show the settings as parsed from the config file (currently
		   only shows the virtualhost settings).

       -t	   Run	syntax tests for configuration files only. The program
		   immediately exits after these syntax parsing with either  a
		   return  code of 0 (Syntax OK) or return code not equal to 0
		   (Syntax Error).  If -D DUMP_VHOSTS is also set, details  of
		   the virtual host configuration will be printed.

       -v	   Print the version of apache2 , and then exit.

       -V	   Print  the  version	and  build parameters of apache2 , and
		   then exit.

       -X	   Run apache2 in debug mode.  Only one worker will be started
		   and the server will not detach from the console.
