httpdHTTP daemon

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

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:

macro=value
Set a macro to a value. Macros can be referenced in the configuration files.
Debug mode. Create one server and don't detach or become a daemon. This allows for easy monitoring of httpd.
file
Specifies the configuration file. The default is /etc/httpd.conf.
Check that the configuration is valid, but don't start any servers.
Verbose mode. Multiple -v options increase the verbosity.

/etc/httpd.conf
Default configuration file.
/etc/ssl/private/server.key
Default SSL/TLS server key.
/etc/ssl/server.crt
Default SSL/TLS server certificate.
/var/run/httpd.sock
UNIX-domain socket used for communication with httpd.
/var/www/logs/access.log
Default access log file.
/var/www/logs/error.log
Default error log file.
