       a2enconf, a2disconf - enable or disable an apache2 configuration file


       a2enconf [ [-q|--quiet] configuration]

       a2disconf [ [-q|--quiet] configuration]


       This manual page documents briefly the a2enconf and a2disconf commands.

       a2enconf  is  a  script  that  enables the specified configuration file
       within the apache2 configuration.  It does this  by  creating  symlinks
       within   /etc/apache2/conf-enabled.   Likewise,  a2disconf  disables  a
       specific configuration part by removing those symlinks.  It is  not  an
       error to enable a configuration which is already enabled, or to disable
       one which is already disabled.

       Note that many configuration file may have  a  dependency  to  specific
       modules.    Unlike   module   dependencies,   these  are  not  resolved
       automatically. Configuration fragments  stored  in  the  conf-available
       directory are considered non-essential or being installed and manged by
       reverse dependencies (e.g. web scripts).


       -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.


       a2enconf  and  a2disconf  exit  with status 0 if all configurations are
       processed successfully, 1 if errors occur, 2 if an invalid  option  was


              a2enconf security
              a2disconf charset

       files, and disables the charset configuration.


              Directory   with   files   giving   information   on   available
              configuration files.

              Directory  with links to the files in conf-available for enabled
