 i found out that somehow the httpd always looks in the /../apache_1.3.2/etc
 for the config files! If i put the *.conf in there, then the server starts up
 with the proper document root (specified in the
 Why httpd looks in ../apache_1.3.2/etc when i specify the ServerRoot in
 httpd.conf as /../apache_1.3.2/ is a mystery?! Also in my startserver command
 (see below), i indicate the httpd to point to another specific directory!
 I would like to know which httpd to use for Apache 1.3.2 (in the /sbin or
 /src subdirectory)?
 My startserver command line goes like:
 /../apache_1.3.2/src/httpd -f /../apache_1.3.2/conf/httpd.conf
 If i do not put my *.conf files in /../apache_1.3.2/etc and starts the
 /src/httpd, then the server does NOT start:
 "httpd: could not open document config file /opt/apache_1.3.2/etc/httpd.conf"
 And yes, for every change in the *.conf files, i stop n start the server.
