Description Robert P. J. Day 2005-08-25 13:05:39 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
  "man apachectl" suggests, in several places, that running apachectl is equivalent to running "apachectl -k <action>".  i'm assuming that, in all those places, it should actually say it's equivalent to "httpd -k <action>", no?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man apachectl
2. read

Comment 1 Gerwin Krist 2005-09-02 03:28:12 EDT
Yes you are right, -k is being used for httpd binary only and not for apachectl.
Comment 2 Gerwin Krist 2005-09-02 03:35:16 EDT
Using apachectl -k start|stop|restart is valid/works (apachectl passes the
parameters to httpd binary). So will close this ticket.
