NAME

httpdHTTP daemon

SYNOPSIS

httpd [-dnv] [-D macro=value] [-f file]

DESCRIPTION

The httpd daemon is an HTTP server with FastCGI and TLS support.
The FastCGI implementation has optional socket support. httpd can log to syslog(3) or per-server files with several standard formats.
httpd rereads its configuration file when it receives SIGHUP and reopens log files when it receives SIGUSR1.
The options are as follows:
 
 
-D macro=value
Set a macro to a value. Macros can be referenced in the configuration files.
 
 
-d
Debug mode. Create one server and don't detach or become a daemon. This allows for easy monitoring of httpd.
 
 
-f file
Specifies the configuration file. The default is /etc/httpd.conf.
 
 
-n
Check that the configuration is valid, but don't start any servers.
 
 
-v
Verbose mode. Multiple -v options increase the verbosity.
