    <h2>Invoking Apache</h2>
  ! The <code>httpd</code> program is either invoked by the Internet 
  ! daemon <code>inetd</code> each time a connection to the HTTP service is made,
  ! or alternatively it may run as a daemon which executes continuously, handling
  ! requests. Whatever method is chosen, the
  ! <A HREF="core.html#servertype">ServerType</A> directive must be set
  ! to tell the server how it is to run.
    
    <h2>Command line options</h2>
    The following options are recognised on the httpd command line:
    <dl>
    <dt><code>-d</code> <em>serverroot</em>
    <dd>Set the initial value for the
  ! <A HREF="core.html#serverroot">ServerRoot</A> variable to
    <em>serverroot</em>. This can be overridden by the ServerRoot command in the
    configuration file. The default is <code>/usr/local/etc/httpd</code>.
    
    <dt><code>-f</code> <em>config</em>
    <dd>Execute the commands in the file <em>config</em> on startup. If
    <em>config</em> does not begin with a <code>/</code>, then it
is taken to be a
  ! path relative to the <A HREF="core.html#serverroot">ServerRoot</A>. The
    default is <code>conf/httpd.conf</code>.
    
    <dt><code>-X</code>

    <h3>pid file</h3>
    On daemon startup, it saves the process id of the parent httpd process to
    the file <code>logs/httpd.pid</code>. This filename can be changed with the
  ! <A HREF="core.html#pidfile">PidFile</A> directive. The process-id is for
    use by the administrator in restarting and terminating the daemon;
    A HUP signal causes the daemon to re-read its configuration files and
    a TERM signal causes it to die gracefully.

    <h3>Error log</h3>
    The server will log error messages to a log file, <code>logs/error_log</code>
    by default. The filename can be set using the
