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

You can set the DocumentRoot to "C:/" (note the forward slash instead of
the backslash).
You can technically set it to just "/" also if you want the drive where
HTTPD is located.

When running HTTPD on Windows, it is good practice to use forward slashes
even though backslashes work in some places.
This is supposed to be inserted as a comment in the Windows httpd.conf (by
httpd/branches/2.4.x/build/installwinconf.awk):
