Subject Re: [users@httpd] Why do I need /var/www as DocumentRoot & www-data as www owner?
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2008 20:59:27 GMT
I have no clue why the Debian Etch distribution is set up as you
describe.

I do remember discussion about the time /var/www was first used, long
ago, about /var always being a read-write file system even if the others
were mounted read-only from some other medium [CD-ROM, NFS, etc.].  This
seemed to be at least part of the motivation.  But I can't speak for
Apache at all.
