NT/2000
>Description:
In the main config file (httpd.conf), if you specify an absolute path in an include directive
(such as: include "C:\Program Files\MyCGI\conf\myhttpd.conf"), apache will prefix this absolute
path with its base directory, before trying to open the file. Thus, the resulting path is
invalid. And apache wont start at all.
>How-To-Repeat:
In the httpd.conf file, add a line such as 'include "C:\XXX\myhttpd.conf"', and launch the
test command line 'apache -t'.
