Subject cvs commit: apache-2.0/mpm/src/support apachectl.8 apachectl.1
Date Sun, 04 Jul 1999 09:27:18 GMT
rse         99/07/04 02:27:17

  Added:       mpm/src/support apachectl.8
  Removed:     mpm/src/support apachectl.1
  Log:
  Ops, seems like something was messed up here:
  apachectl.8 was missing and instead an empty apachectl.1 exists.
  Fix this to let "make install" work also for apache-mpm.

  .SH NAME
  apachectl \- Apache HTTP server control interface
  .SH SYNOPSIS
  .B apachectl 
  \fIcommand\fP [...]
  .SH DESCRIPTION
  .B apachectl
  is a front end to the Apache HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) 
  server.  It is designed to help the administrator control the 
  functioning of the Apache 
  .B httpd
  daemon.  
  .PP
  .B NOTE: 
  If your Apache installation uses non-standard paths, you will need to 
  edit the 
  .B apachectl
  script to set the appropriate paths to your PID file and your 
  .B httpd
  binary.  See the comments in the script for details.
  .PP
  The 
  .B apachectl
  script returns a 0 exit value on success, and >0 if an error 
  occurs.  For more details, view the comments in the script.
  .PP
  Full documentation for Apache is available at 
  .B http://www.apache.org/
  .
  .SH OPTIONS
  The \fIcommand\fP can be any one or more of the following options:
  .TP 12
  .BI start
  Start the Apache daemon.  Gives an error if it is already running.
  .TP
  .BI stop
  Stops the Apache daemon.
  .TP
  .BI restart
  Restarts the Apache daemon by sending it a SIGHUP.  If the daemon
  is not running, it is started.
  This command automatically checks the configuration files via 
  .BI configtest
  before initiating the restart to make sure Apache doesn't die.
  .TP
  .BI fullstatus
  Displays a full status report from 
  .B mod_status. 
  For this to work, you need to have mod_status enabled on your server 
  and a text-based browser such as \fIlynx\fP available on your system.  The
  URL used to access the status report can be set by editing the
  .B STATUSURL
  variable in the script.
  .TP
  .BI status
  Displays a brief status report.  Similar to the fullstatus option,
  except that the list of requests currently being served is omitted.
  .TP
  .BI graceful
  Gracefully restarts the Apache daemon by sending it a SIGUSR1.  If
  the daemon is not running, it is started.  This differs from a
  normal restart in that currently open connections are not aborted.
  A side effect is that old log files will not be closed immediately.
  This means that if used in a log rotation script, a substantial delay may be
  necessary to ensure that the old log files are closed before processing them.
  This command automatically checks the configuration files via 
  .BI configtest
  before initiating the restart to make sure Apache doesn't die.
  .TP
  .BI configtest
  Run a configuration file syntax test. It parses the configuration
  files and either reports 
  .B "Syntax Ok"
  or detailed information about the particular syntax error.
  .TP
  .BI help
  Displays a short help message.
