       httpd  [  -d serverroot ] [ -f config ] [ -C directive ] [
       -c directive ] [ -D parameter ] [ -e level ] [ -E file ] [
       -k start|restart|graceful|stop ] [ -R directory ] [ -h ] [
       -l ] [ -L ] [ -S ] [ -t ] [ -v ] [ -V ] [ -X ]

       On Windows systems, the following additional arguments are

       httpd [ -k install|config|uninstall ] [ -n name ] [ -w ]


       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 sys­
       tems or as a service on Windows NT, 2000 and XP and  as  a
       console application on Windows 9x and ME.


              -d serverroot
                     Set  the  initial  value  for the ServerRoot
                     directive to serverroot. This can  be  over­
                     ridden  by  the  ServerRoot directive in the
                     configuration   file.   The    default    is

              -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

              -k start|restart|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.
                     increasing the verbosity of the  error  mes­
                     sages to find problems during startup.

              -E file
                     Send error messages during server startup to

              -R directory
                     When  the  server  is  compiled  using   the
                     SHARED_CORE  rule, this specifies the direc­
                     tory 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

              -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

              -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). If -D DUMP_VHOSTS
                     is  also  set,  details  of the virtual host
                     configuration 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

              -k install|config|uninstall
