This document explains some of the directives provided by
core server which are used to configure
the basic operations of the server.
control what information about the server will be presented
in server-generated documents such as error messages. The
sets the value of the Server HTTP response header field.
directives are used by the server to determine how to construct
self-referential URLs. For example, when a client requests a
directory, but does not include the trailing slash in the
directory name, Apache must redirect the client to the full
name including the trailing slash so that the client will
correctly resolve relative references in the document.
These directives control the locations of the various files
that Apache needs for proper operation. When the pathname used
does not begin with a slash (/), the files are located relative
ServerRoot. Be careful
about locating files in paths which are writable by non-root users.
See the security tips
documentation for more details.
directives are used to place limits on the amount of resources
Apache will use in reading requests from clients. By limiting
these values, some kinds of denial of service attacks can be
are used to limit the amount of resources which can be used by
processes forked off from the Apache children. In particular,
this will control resources used by CGI scripts and SSI exec
is used only on Netware to control the stack size.
