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 or threads to
handle requests.

In general, apache2 should not be invoked directly, but rather should
be invoked via /etc/init.d/apache2 or apache2ctl. The default Debian
configuration requires environment variables that are defined in
/etc/apache2/envvars and are not available if apache2 is started
directly. However, apache2ctl can be used to pass arbitrary arguments
to apache2.

The full documentation is available in the apache2 doc package or at . Information about Debian specific
changes and configuration can be found in /usr/share/doc/apache2.2 com
mon/README.Debian.gz .

d serverroot
Set the initial value for the ServerRoot directive to server
root. This can be overridden by the ServerRoot directive in the
configuration file.

f config
Uses the directives in the file config on startup. If config
does not begin with a /, then it is taken to be a path relative
to the ServerRoot. The default is /etc/apache2/apache2.conf.

k start|restart|graceful|stop|graceful stop
Signals apache2 to start, restart, or stop. See Stopping Apache
for more information.

C directive
Process the configuration directive before reading config files.

c directive
Process the configuration directive after reading config files.

D parameter
Sets a configuration parameter which can be used with
sections in the configuration files to conditionally skip or
process commands at server startup and restart.

e level
Sets the LogLevel to level during server startup. This is useful
for temporarily increasing the verbosity of the error messages
to find problems during startup.

E file
Send error messages during server startup to file.

R directory
When the server is compiled using the SHARED_CORE rule, this
specifies the directory for the shared object files.

h Output a short summary of available command line options.

l Output a list of modules compiled into the server. This will not
list dynamically loaded modules included using the LoadModule

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

M Dump a list of loaded Static and Shared Modules.

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 imme
diately exits after these syntax parsing tests with either a
return code of 0 (Syntax OK) or return code not equal to 0 (Syn
tax Error). If D DUMP_VHOSTS is also set, details of the vir
tual host configuration will be printed. If D DUMP_MODULES is
set, all loaded modules will be printed.

v Print the version of apache2, and then exit.

V Print the version and build parameters of apache2, and then

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