Under Windows NT using the engine v10b23p1 and above you have to give the parameter
that informs the engine that the program was started from the command line and not as an installed service. Although you can use this option further following the version v10b30 it is not a must anymore. This version implements some heuristics that can distinguish the service start from the command line start fast.
You can install the executable file as a service under Windows NT invoking the command line
You can remove the installed service under Windows NT invoking the command line
These options (`-install' and `–remove') are not available under UNIX. To start the service and to alter the service options use the Windows NT Service Control Manager (SCM).
All other command line options that alter the behavior of the web server should be written after the options –start or –safe. Thus
sbhttpd –p 88 –start WRONG
