SYNOPSIS

a2ensite [site]

a2dissite [site]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the a2ensite and a2dissite commands.

a2ensite is a script that enables the specified site (which contains a <VirtualHost> block) within the apache2 configuration. It does this by creating symlinks within /etc/apache2/sites-enabled. Likewise, a2dissite disables a site by removing those symlinks. It is not an error to enable a site which is already enabled, or to disable one which is already disabled.

The default site is handled specially: The resulting symlink will be called 000-default in order to be loaded first.

EXAMPLES

a2dissite default

Disables the default site.

FILES

/etc/apache2/sites-available

Directory with files giving information on available sites.

/etc/apache2/sites-enabled

Directory with links to the files in sites-available for enabled sites.
