Subject Re: understanding configuration data blocks
Date Wed, 09 May 2007 02:14:17 GMT
In lieu of a quick answer, I find:

to be a very good read and source of information about Apache internals.

There is a section on configuration in there and I vaguely remember it
describing somewhere where the multiple server/dir configs come from
plus why your command processors get called multiple times.

Bit too busy right now to hunt down the actual section for you.
