NAME

       a2ensite, a2dissite - enable or disable an apache2 site / virtual host

SYNOPSIS

       a2ensite [ [-q|--quiet] site]

       a2dissite [ [-q|--quiet] site]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the a2ensite and a2dissite commands.

       a2ensite  is a script that enables the specified site (which contains a
       <VirtualHost> block) within the apache2 configuration.  It does this by
       creating   symlinks   within   /etc/apache2/sites-enabled.    Likewise,
       a2dissite disables a site by removing those symlinks.   It  is  not  an
       error  to  enable  a  site  which is already enabled, or to disable one
       which is already disabled.

       Apache treats the very first virtual host enabled  specially  as  every
       request  not  matching  any actual directive is being redirected there.
       Thus it should be called  000-default  in  order  to  sort  before  the
       remaining hosts to be loaded first.

OPTIONS

       -q, --quiet
              Don't show informative messages.

       -m, --maintmode
              Enables  the  maintainer mode, that is the program invocation is
              effectuated automatically by a maintainer  script.  This  switch
              should not be used by end users.

       -p, --purge
              When  disabling  a module, purge all traces of the module in the
              internal state data base.

EXIT STATUS

       a2ensite and a2dissite exit with status 0 if all  sites  are  processed
       successfully, 1 if errors occur, 2 if an invalid option was used.

EXAMPLES

              a2dissite 000-default

       Disables the default site.

FILES

       /etc/apache2/sites-available
              Directory with files giving information on available sites.

       /etc/apache2/sites-enabled
              Directory with links to the files in sites-available for enabled
              sites.
