Subject pathnames in directives
Date Thu, 21 Jun 2001 20:46:15 GMT
One thing that I think confuses many people about the apache docs is
trying to determine what kind of pathname each directive takes.  For
example, should a pathname be

1. Absolute
2. Relative to the documentroot
3. Relative to the webspace
3. Relative to the serverroot

Some directives are clear about this, but some are not.  For example, the
DocumentRoot directive says
Syntax: DocumentRoot directory-filename

I have actually seen several people try to point DocumentRoot at a
particular file, rather than a directory.

Does anyone have ideas/suggestions on how to clarify this?
