Why is apachectl not working on OS X Server 5.x?

With OS X Server 5 has introduced quite a few changes.

Once you install OS X Server 5 on Yosemite or El Capitan, the “desktop” version of Apache is taken over by a “server” version inside Server.app. To differentiate between the two and to take into account the different methods for stopping and starting Apache, a new command has been introduced with server-apachectl.

You can still use the same parameters. For example:

sudo server-apachectl graceful

sudo server-apachectl restart
