Overview

You can use the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/rebuildhttpdconf script to rebuild Apache’s main configuration file.

Important:
This script does not restart Apache. To restart Apache, run the restartsrv_httpd script.
Note:
The system automatically updates Apache's configuration as needed, so you may not need to run this script manually at all.

Run the script

To run this script on the command line, use the following format:

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/rebuildhttpdconf --preview --nolock

Options

Use the following options with this script:

Options Description Example
--preview Creates a file named httpd-preview.conf instead of httpd.conf. This allows you to inspect the configuration file before you use it on your system. /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/rebuildhttpdconf --preview
--nolock Usually, the system locks the configuration file during the rebuilding process to prevent two processes from conflicting. This option disables that lock. /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/rebuildhttpdconf --nolock

Success

If the script succeeds, it will return output similar to the following example:
