Hi Dirk,

Zitat von Dirk Devos <>:

this depends on your distribution's setup. In my case I can see that  
apache(2)ctl does *source* /etc/sysconfig/apache2, which would be then  
the proper place for local customization. How your distro handles  
this, is something you will have to find out (i.e. by looking at your  
apachectl script).

Why your variables aren't set properly is a different (shell  
scripting) story, maybe running your script via "set -x" will give you  
a clue.
