       nanoctl - Starts and Stops Nanoweb


       nanoctl command [...]


       nanoweb.php is a utility which allows you to start and stop the Nanoweb HyperText Transfer
       Protocol (HTTP) server. Among this it allows you to show the current state of the  running
       server.    If   Nanoweb   is   running   you'll   find   the   full   documentation  under


       The command argument can be one out of the following:

       start     Brings up the Nanoweb Server.

       stop      Stops the Nanoweb daemon.

       restart   This command reinitializes Nanoweb, or with  other  words  stops  it  first  and
                 starts it again.

       reload    Makes  Nanoweb  reread  the  main server configuration files (by sending the HUP
                 signal to the running nanoweb.php).

       status    Shows a summary of the current server state.

       status who
                 Status page which lists all active server processes (usually there is more  than
                 one "subserver").

       status detailed
                 Full status information.

       status vstats
                 Shows the status of all defined virtual hosts.

       status detailed-vstats
                 More detailed version of the above one.


       You  really  don't  need  to  use nanoctl to start and stop the Nanoweb server daemon. You
       could do all this with the standard UNIX kill(1) command. However  nanoctl  is  of  course
       much more easy and flexible to use.  It is for example designed to easily allow to run the
       Nanoweb daemon on system bootup by simply creating a  ln(1)  symlink  to  nanoctl  in  the
       /etc/rc2.d/ directory for example.


       nanoctl used to give too few error messages in the past, but this seems fixed currently.

       A  common mistake is to run nanoweb.php(8) from commandline, which doesn't create the PID-
       file automatically and trying to stop nanoweb.php with nanoctl, which usually  won't  work
       that way.


              This  file  holds the process id (PID) of the running nanoweb.php daemon to make it
              easier for nanoctl to stop it.
