httpd - HTTP 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:
-D macro=value Set a macro to a value. Macros can be referenced in the
-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
-n Check that the configuration is valid, but don't start
-v Verbose mode. Multiple -v options increases the
/etc/httpd.conf Default configuration file.
