NAME

     httpd - HTTP 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.

     /var/run/httpd.sock          UNIX-domain socket used for communication
                                  with httpd.
