Uhm, you aren't invoking it properly, see the apachectl script for starting
and stopping httpd.  It shouldn't be invoked directly unless you know
exactly what you are doing (which evidently isn't the case).

httpd forks off processes to do the work.  The one you start is a monitor
and overseer responsible for ensuring there is a worker to do the work.
