Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45103] apachectl should do config test before reload/restart, according to documentation, but it doesn't
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2008 17:16:28 GMT

--- Comment #4 from Matthew Hodgson <>  2008-09-02 10:16:27 PST
The current trunk (2.3) documentation at states:

"As with a graceful restart, a syntax check is run before the restart is
attempted. If your configuration file has errors in it, the restart will not be
attempted, and you will receive notification of the syntax error(s)."

As far as I can see, support in apachectl for running a configtest before a
restart was removed in r95307 ('simplified apachectl...'):

Is there any good reason for apachectl to not test the config before
restarting?  Anyone used to the 1.3 behaviour could be very seriously affected
by this regression - not least the contradictory documentation.
