So are you saying I can edit the apahectl?

Here is the full explanation I can give you, we need multiple
instances of apache on a server, without using "virtual servers."

So what I have done is created different httpd.conf (with other
trimmings in /tools/httpd/<server-application-name.  I have given them
there own startup scrips that call

apachetcl -f <path-to-httpd.conf> -k start 

This all works fine and dandy expect, when we add something like
siteminder into the mix and need to use /usr/sbin/envvars.  The SA's
don't want us to be able to edit that file.

So what I have done was created a /etc/sysconfig/siteminder and
/etc/init.d/httpd-server-app-name(cp of httpd) except edited that to
use /etc/sysconfig/siteminder if it is there.  I have been sucsessful
at starting it with adding -f <path-to-conf> after


or in the start section

start() {
        echo -n $"Starting $prog: "
        check13 || exit 1
        daemon $httpd -f /tools/httpd/dvmk0023-Z5S-Secure/conf/httpd.conf

Which works, but stopping it is another story, it will hang and other
things that don't seem to be working correctly.  Maybe someone has a
suggestion on a way the stop section should look?

This info might help
