Subject Port 80 vs 8080 when not SU.
Date Wed, 10 Jul 2002 14:36:52 GMT

In apache 1.3 we had this little trick:

    if [ "x`$aux/getuid.sh`" != "x0" -a "x$port" = "x" ]; then
        conf_port="8080"
    fi

to make the port 8080 when the user is not root - thus to reduce the
number of 'apache wont start' newby errors and be generally convenient for
the masses (and disorganized people like me).

Has that been dropped from 2.0 for a reason or by accident ?

Dw.
