sudo ./httpdctl stop - then have fun restarting it!

You want to have fun and cause everyone on the FMS server to log out while you have to reboot the machine?


I decided to lean about OSX's launchctl and LaunchDaemons, etc.   But, first I wanted to make sure I could reliably control FMS's apache processes.


$ cd /Library/FileMaker Server/HTTPServer/bin

$ sudo ./httpdctl stop

$ sudo ./httpdctl start

exit code 1


This logs shows it complains about an incorrect passphrase.   


So, you'd think that you could at least start up something you've stopped without having to reboot.   Anybody know why this happens?
