The following command will load Apache from 64 to 32 bit (Mac OS):

sudo arch -i386 /usr/sbin/httpd

What is the command if I want then to switch back to 64 bit mode?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Just don't use the arch command to specify an architecture:

sudo /usr/sbin/httpd

(This assumes that you've killed off the previously running instance of httpd).
