       apachectl command [...]


       apachectl  is a front end to the Apache HyperText Transfer
       Protocol (HTTP) server.  It is designed to help the admin­
       istrator  control the functioning of the Apache httpd dae­

       NOTE: If your Apache installation uses non-standard paths,
       you  will  need  to  edit  the apachectl script to set the
       appropriate paths to your PID file and your httpd  binary.
       See the comments in the script for details.

       The  apachectl  script  returns a 0 exit value on success,
       and >0 if an error occurs.  For  more  details,  view  the
       comments in the script.

       Full    documentation   for   Apache   is   available   at


       The command can be  any  one  or  more  of  the  following

       start       Start the Apache daemon.  Gives an error if it
                   is already running.

       stop        Stops the Apache daemon.

       restart     Restarts the Apache daemon  by  sending  it  a
                   SIGHUP.   If  the daemon is not running, it is
                   started.  This  command  automatically  checks
                   the  configuration files via configtest before
                   initiating the restart  to  make  sure  Apache
                   doesn't die.

       fullstatus  Displays a full status report from mod_status.
                   For this to work, you need to have  mod_status
                   enabled   on  your  server  and  a  text-based
                   browser such as lynx available on your system.
                   The  URL  used to access the status report can
                   be set by editing the  STATUSURL  variable  in
                   the script.

       status      Displays  a  brief  status report.  Similar to
                   the fullstatus option, except that the list of
                   requests currently being served is omitted.

       graceful    Gracefully restarts the Apache daemon by send­
                   ing it a SIGUSR1.  If the daemon is  not  run­
                   ning, it is started.  This differs from a nor­
                   about the particular syntax error.

       help        Displays a short help message.
