DESCRIPTION

       apache 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  may  be  invoked  by the Internet daemon
       inetd(8) each time a connection to the HTTP service is made.

       This manual page only lists the command line arguments. For details  of
       the  directives  necessary  to  configure apache 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 apache.

OPTIONS

       -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
                   /usr/local/apache.

       -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
                   conf/httpd.conf.

       -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
                   <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
                   supervisors.

       -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
                   service.

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

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