Subject configuring.html
Date Thu, 11 Jan 2001 07:19:50 GMT
This is a diff of configuring.html between httpd-docs-2.0
and httpd-docs-1.3 (Note httpd-docs-1.3 contains new docs).
IIRC, the same feature was added to httpd-2.0.  Can someone
confirm it?  I'd like to sync second part of this diff but
I'm not familiar with httpd-2.0 source code.
