FMS v13 Mac OS X Mavericks - Apache commands

Discussion created by fmdataweb on Jan 30, 2014

I have a Mac OS X 10.9/Mavericks Mac which I have just installed FileMaker Server v13. The FileMaker Server installer creates its own instance of the Apache web server and configures this web server to use port 80 for HTTP and port 443 for HTTPS.


I'm trying to use the Apache commands via the Mac OS X Terminal to stop/start/restart this instance but it looks like it's trying to use the standard OS X Apache not the FileMaker Server installed instance. I'm making some changes to the http.conf file and just need to restart the version of Apache installed by FileMaker Server without having to restart any of the other FileMaker services.


For example I would like to use:


sudo apachetctl restart


When there are 2 instances of Apache installed how do you specify which instance you wish to command?
