Subject Re: [users@httpd] URG:DocumentRoot relate query on WIndows

What you are seeing is correct behavior, DocumentRoot is an absolute
path, whether you have specified this or not. If httpd sees an incomplete
path, it is going to work out an absolute path from the ServerRoot If it
appends the default and cannot establish a full path, you will receive
the indicated error.

It seems your ServerRoot/config is equally problematic, if httpd.conf
exists in the root of a system volume. There should be nothing that
is significant about the volume C:, but there may be something very
significant about the permissions of that volume, etc.
