  +   <P>
  +   In Apache version 1.2 (beginning with 1.2b8), the error log message
  +   about dumped core includes the directory where the dump file should be
  +   located.  However, some operating systems regard the dumping of core
  +   by processes with superuser authority as a potential security issue,
  +   and short-circuit the dump code, leaving no file.  Since most Web
  +   servers listen on port 80 (a privileged port), they need to run with
  +   superuser authority, and so this short-circuit will apply to them.
  +   </P>
  +   <P>
  +   Dealing with this is extremely operating system-specific, and may
  +   require rebuilding your system kernel.  Consult your operating system
  +   documentation or vendor for more information about whether your system
  +   does this and how to bypass it.  If there <EM>is</EM> a documented way
  +   of bypassing it, it is recommended that you bypass it only for the
  +   <SAMP>httpd</SAMP> server process if possible.
  +   </P>
  +   <P>
  +   The canonical location for Apache's core-dump files is the
  +   <A
  +    HREF="../mod/core.html#serverrot"
  +   >ServerRoot</A>
  +   directory.
