       apache-perl - Apache hypertext transfer protocol server

       apache-perl is the Apache HyperText  Transfer  Protocol  (HTTP)  server
       program. It is designed to be run as a stand-alone 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)
       process. The PID of this process is written to a file as given  in  the
       configuration  file.   Alternatively  apache-perl may be invoked by the
       Internet daemon inetd(8) each time a connection to the HTTP service  is

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


       -R libexecdir
                   This  option is only available if Apache was built with the
                   SHARED_CORE rule enabled which forces the Apache core  code
                   to  be placed into a dynamic shared object (DSO) file. This
                   file is searched in a hardcoded path under  ServerRoot  per
                   default. Use this option if you want to override it.

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

       -f config   Execute the commands 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

       -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
                   <IfDefine>...</IfDefine>  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
                   arguments 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).

       -T          Same as  option  -t  but  does  not  check  the  configured
                   document roots.

       -F          Run   the   main   process   in   foreground,  for  process

       -X          Run in single-process mode, for internal debugging purposes
                   only;  the daemon does not detach from the terminal or fork
                   any children. Do NOT use this mode to provide ordinary  web

       -v          Print the version of apache-perl , and then exit.

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