Noah- It sounds like your server is running an archaic version of Apache (hence the lack of the rather new apachectl app). Have you tried explicitly stating the path to the conf when you run httpd? Like this: httpd -f /path/to/your/httpd.conf Also you might want to check to see if httpd is actually being handled by inetd (/etc/inetd.conf).
