Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 52604] miss spelling

--- Comment #2 from Rich Bowen <rbowen@apache.org> 2012-02-06 14:12:37 UTC ---
It's in httpd.conf.in and what's actually there is this:

# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so
"@rel_logfiledir@/foo_log"
# with ServerRoot set to "@@ServerRoot@@" will be interpreted by the
# server as "@@ServerRoot@@/@rel_logfiledir@/foo_log".

So, I'd need to dig a little deeper to see what @rel_logfiledir@ is supposed to
be, but based on the context I presume that it's supposed to be a RELATIVE
path, hence the name.

The thing is, depending on how one installs, it can never be certain that it's
going to be.

I think what happened here is that the example was a useful one with filler
values, and someone put in the variables where they weren't actually helpful,
thus breaking the example depending on ./configure options.

Does that make sense?
