a2disconf(8) enable or disable an apache2 configuration file

Other Alias

a2enconf

SYNOPSIS

a2enconf [ [-q|--quiet] configuration]

a2disconf [ [-q|--quiet] configuration]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the a2enconf and a2disconf commands.

a2enconf is a script that enables the specified configuration file within the apache2 configuration. It does this by creating symlinks within /etc/apache2/conf-enabled. Likewise, a2disconf disables a specific configuration part by removing those symlinks. It is not an error to enable a configuration which is already enabled, or to disable one which is already disabled.

Note that many configuration file may have a dependency to specific modules. Unlike module dependencies, these are not resolved automatically. Configuration fragments stored in the conf-available directory are considered non-essential or being installed and manged by reverse dependencies (e.g. web scripts).

OPTIONS

-q, --quiet
Don't show informative messages.
-m, --maintmode
Enables the maintainer mode, that is the program invocation is effectuated automatically by a maintainer script. This switch should not be used by end users.
-p, --purge
When disabling a module, purge all traces of the module in the internal state data base.

EXIT STATUS

a2enconf and a2disconf exit with status 0 if all configurations are processed successfully, 1 if errors occur, 2 if an invalid option was used.

EXAMPLES

a2enconf security
a2disconf charset

Enables Apache security directives stored in the security configuration files, and disables the charset configuration.
