server-status needs "r" access to DocumentRoot directory

           Summary: server-status needs "r" access to DocumentRoot directory
           Product: Apache httpd-1.3
           Version: 1.3.26
          Platform: Sun
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: gallou@cict.fr


Server-status should not depend on any file system, but it does.

Generally, I don't give httpd "r" access to directories, only "x". But
"http://my.server/server-status" returns a 403 error (Forbidden) if httpd can't
read the DocumentRoot directory. Chmod'ing it (chmod o+r) restores the correct
behavior.

My httpd.conf contains the standard:
  <Location /server-status>
    SetHandler server-status
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from 130.120.72.15
  </Location>

Of course, httpd does not run under the root account, and the DocumentRoot does
not belong to it.
