apache question


whats the difference between restarting/stopping apache using 'service httpd restart/stop' and apachectl restart/stop. I know that using 'service httpd restart' is actually a script in /etc/init.d/httpd but what about apachectl? Can someone please give me a quick explanation?

Thx

If you look at the init script you'll probably find that
it's just a wrapper, and actually calls apachectl to do
the task at hand.


Cheers,
Tink
