Yes, I am using mod_cgid as per httpd.conf:

LoadModule cgid_module modules/

But, I don't see any reference to worker or MPM in the httpd.conf. If 
I understand right, those are modules, so they should have a module 
line in httpd.conf to get loaded.

Here is the config.nice file that was generated at compile time:

"./configure" \
"--prefix=/httpd/usr/local/apache2" \
"--enable-suexec" \
"--with-suexec-caller=WWW" \
"--with-suexec-docroot=/httpd" \
"--with-suexec-gidmin=100" \
"--with-suexec-logfile=/var/log/apache2/suexec_log" \
"--with-suexec-safepath=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin" \
"--with-suexec-userdir=HTML" \
"--with-suexec-uidmin=500" \
"--with-suexec-umask=077" \
"--with-suexec-bin=/usr/sbin/suexec2" \
"--with-perl=/usr/bin/perl" \
"--with-expat=/usr" \
"--with-ssl=/usr/bin" \
"--with-z=/usr" \
"--with-port=80" \
"--with-program-name=apache2" \
"--with-devrandom=/dev/urandom" \
"--enable-module=usertrack" \
"--enable-module=log_referer" \
"--enable-module=expires" \
"--enable-module=rewrite" \
"--enable-module=speling" \
"--enable-module=so" \

Is there any way I can get to log in the right folder?
