condition, it's important 
+    to consider how extremely early in request processing that this

+    context (directory, location, htaccess) is not likely to have yet had a 
+    chance to execute. <code class="directive"><a href="./mod/mod_setenvif.html#setenvif">SetEnvIf</a></code>
+    in virtual host scope is one directive that runs prior to this resolution
+    <br />
+    <br />
+    When <code>reqenv</code> is used outside of &lt;<code class="directive"><a
href="./mod/core.html#if">If</a></code>&gt;, the resolution will generally
occur later, but the 
+    exact timing depends on the directive the expression has been used within.
