Subject Re: [PATCH] server root (was path change to /usr/local/apache...)
Date Sat, 01 Nov 1997 21:45:35 GMT
What happens if someone changes the dir in httpd.h to be
/usr/local/etc/httpd ?

While the patch won't do anything incorrect in that case, it won't
entirely be nice.   Actually, I could go for changing anything that
suggests modifying httpd.h to saying do it in the Configuration file (now
that you can), and add a comment to httpd.h saying "don't change this
unless you know what you are doing.  Do it in the Configuration file.".

Easier upgrades.
