NAMEa2enconf, a2disconf - enable or disable an apache2 configuration file
SYNOPSISa2enconf [ [-q|--quiet] configuration]
DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents briefly the a2enconf and a2disconf commands.
a2enconf is a script that enables the specified configuration file within the apache2 configuration. It does this by creating symlinks within /etc/apache2/conf-enabled. Likewise, a2disconf disables a specific configuration part by removing those symlinks. It is not an error to enable a configuration which is already enabled, or to disable one which is already disabled.
Note that many configuration file may have a dependency to specific modules. Unlike module dependencies, these are not resolved automatically. Configuration fragments stored in the conf-available directory are considered non-essential or being installed and manged by reverse dependencies (e.g. web scripts).
- -q, --quiet

- -m, --maintmode
