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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man apachectl
Yes you are right, -k is being used for httpd binary only and not for apachectl.
Using apachectl -k start|stop|restart is valid/works (apachectl passes the
parameters to httpd binary). So will close this ticket.
