Subject [PATCH] httpd-2.0/docs/man/httpd.8
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2001 19:28:27 GMT

The httpd man page is a bit out of date.  The default install path is
wrong and there are a few options listed that either don't seem to exist
anymore or have been added and are missing.  Does the following look right
to you all?  Also, I know that this information is duplicated in at least
one other place (httpd-2.0/docs/manual/programs/httpd.html).  Is that the
only other place?  Is one of these files generated from the other?
