You are probably not privileged enough (as a user) to do this. You
likely want to pass it through "sudo" first.

e.g. sudo ./apachectl graceful.

You should be prompted for you *user* password. If you user is allowed
to administer the machine, you should become root temporarily and run
the command.

If you run several sudo commands in relatively quick succession, you
wont have to type your password in again.
