  +On Windows 95 Apache runs as a console application. You can tell a
  +running Apache to stop by opening another console window and running
  +    apache -k shutdown
  +This should be used instead of pressing Control-C in the running
  +Apache console window, because it lets Apache end any current
  +transactions and cleanup gracefully.
  +You can also tell Apache to restart. This makes it re-read the
  +configuration files. Any transactions in progress are allowed to
  +complete without interruption. To restart Apache, run
  +    apache -k restart
  +Note for people familiar with the Unix version of Apache: these
  +commands provide a Windows equivalent to <CODE>kill -TERM
  +<i>pid</i></CODE> and <CODE>kill -USR1 <i>pid</i></CODE>.
The command
  +line option used, <CODE>-k</CODE>, was chosen as a reminder of the
  +"kill" command used on Unix.
