a2ensite, a2dissite - enable or disable an apache2 site / virtual host
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.
Disables the default site.
