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, a2dis-
site 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
Apache treats the very first virtual host enabled specially as every
request not matching any actual directive is being redirected there.
Thus it should be called 000-default in order to sort before the
remaining hosts to be loaded first.
Don't show informative messages.
Enables the maintainer mode, that is the program invocation is
effectuated automatically by a maintainer script. This switch
should not be used by end users.

internal state data base.
a2ensite and a2dissite exit with status 0 if all sites are processed
