Subject [PATCH] remove bogus LockFile warning from docs
Date Mon, 22 Dec 1997 21:10:57 GMT
None of the issues with placement of the LockFile apply, so the below
warning about the LockFile directive is not necessary.  The only risk is
that someone else could create a file with that name and prevent the
server from starting; well, a lot of files unless they can guess the pid.
