  +<CODE>DOCUMENT_ROOT</CODE> environment variable). In a normal
  +configuration this setting is used by the core module when mapping
  +URIs to filenames, but when the server is configured to do dynamic
  +virtual hosting that job is taken over by another module (either
  +<CODE>mod_vhost_alias</CODE> or <CODE>mod_rewrite</CODE>) which
has
  +a different way of doing the mapping. Neither of these modules is
  +responsible for setting the <CODE>DOCUMENT_ROOT</CODE> environment
  +variable so if any CGIs or SSI documents make use of it they will
  +get a misleading value.</P>
