SUMMARY
       httpd is the Apache HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) server  program.
       It is designed to be run as a standalone daemon process. When used like
       this it will create a pool of child  processes  or  threads  to	handle
       requests.


       In  general, httpd should not be invoked directly, but rather should be
       invoked via apachectl on Unix-based systems or as a service on  Windows
       NT, 2000 and XP and as a console application on Windows 9x and ME.



OPTIONS
       -d serverroot
	      Set  the	initial	 value for the ServerRoot directive to server-
	      root. This can be overridden by the ServerRoot directive in  the
	      configuration file. The default is /etc/httpd.

       -f config
	      Uses  the	 directives  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.

       -k start|restart|graceful|stop|graceful-stop
	      Signals  httpd  to  start, restart, or stop. See Stopping Apache
	      for more information.

       -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>
	      sections	in  the	 configuration	files to conditionally skip or
	      process commands at server startup and restart.

       -e level
	      Sets the LogLevel to level during server startup. This is useful
	      for  temporarily	increasing the verbosity of the error messages
	      to find problems during startup.

       -E file
	      Send error messages during server startup to file.

       -R directory
	      When the server is compiled using	 the  SHARED_CORE  rule,  this
	      specifies the directory for the shared object files.

       -h     Output a short summary of available command line options.

       -l     Output a list of modules compiled into the server. This will not
	      list dynamically loaded modules included	using  the  LoadModule
	      directive.

       -L     Output a list of directives together with expected arguments and
	      places where the directive is valid.

       -M     Dump a list of loaded Static and Shared Modules.

       -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 imme-
	      diately exits after these syntax parsing	tests  with  either  a
	      return code of 0 (Syntax OK) or return code not equal to 0 (Syn-
	      tax Error). If -D DUMP_VHOSTS is also set, details of  the  vir-
	      tual  host configuration will be printed. If -D DUMP_MODULES  is
	      set, all loaded modules will be printed.

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

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

       -X     Run httpd in debug mode. Only one worker will be started and the
	      server will not detach from the console.


       The following arguments are available only on the Windows platform:



       -k install|config|uninstall
	      Install Apache as a Windows NT service; change  startup  options
	      for the Apache service; and uninstall the Apache service.

       -n name
	      The name of the Apache service to signal.

       -w     Keep  the console window open on error so that the error message
	      can be read.
