How to start Apache2

How could I start Apache2 manualy in my SuSE 9.3?
I can configure it via YaST to start during boot but I want to control it's start. It seems that there isn't a "apachectl" command.

Any help?

tomj88 had it right. It is definitely /etc/init.d/apache2 start

One could always create a symbolic link from /usr/bin/apachectl to /etc/init.d/apache2 if desired.
