    difference between httpd -k start and service httpd start?


    I'm a Linux newbie just over a year old. I'm just starting to like how the hard work up front pays off once it's up and running.

    anyway, apache 2.2.3-5 (this is what I get from rpm -q httpd...I assume that's the version number)

    when I try to start httpd from GUI, it just hangs and never starts, no error message, no nothing. I try to start using "service httpd start" and it fails. Again, no error message. When I try to start using "httpd -k start" it starts immediately and all is well with my web sites.

    there are entries added to log files when I do this:

    error_log

    What's the difference between the two startup commands, and should I be worried about this? Thanks!
