Subject [users@httpd] apache refuses options on windows
Date Mon, 25 Jul 2005 18:53:11 GMT

I have apache installed as a service on a windows server 2003 machine. 
When I tried to restart apache using apache -k restart, I get two 
different behaviors.

At the command prompt interactively, everything runs fine.

But when this command is executed by apache itself (with mod_perl), then 
it says
   apache.exe: illegal option -- k
and print out the help page.

For testing purposes, I tried using other options like -t and -n too. 
Apache all refused to take these options when invoked by mod_perl.

Any clues? Thanks!

All the best,
