What I would do on Solaris:
  - gcore <apache PID>
  - strings core.<pid> > core_apache.txt
  - have a look inside the strings

I just had a look on our web server, it looks promising, the
configuration is there, though it's been parsed and need some work.

However, I don't know what's the equivalent of gcore on a GNU/Linux box,
though there must be one.
