Subject [users@httpd] Warning: DocumentRoot [/www/manual] does not exist while trying to run a mod_chroot Apache 2
Date Wed, 10 Nov 2004 10:39:02 GMT
Hi I am a SysAdmin our Organisation is a Linux/SuSE shop we have a
Chrooted Apache2 in testing with virtual hosting and Zope/Plone websites

My boss has suggested to use the less taxing mod_chroot
which I have configured as follows :

SuSE Linux O/s Apache 2 httpd.conf file

ServerRoot "/usr/apache2/apache-test"
ChrootDir "/chroot/apache2/www"
DocumentRoot "/"

PidFile "/www/

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "/www/manual"
#DocumentRoot "/manual" # tried this as well .

Thus when I run  ./apachectl restart
Warning: DocumentRoot [/www/manual] does not exist

Also this when I changed the DocumentRoot to "/manual"

Warning: DocumentRoot [/manual] does not exist

I have read the mod_chroot doc's but cant find the problem as I have
created the neccessary directories and my html files reside in the dir
in question /chroot/apache2/www/ where my websites resides .

Is there any more examples out there in relation to using mod_chroot for
Apache 2 Linux .
