Re: any good way to get the apache DocumentRoot value?

Hello "Luc MAIGNAN" <luc.maignan@winxpert.com>,

BTW, in Debian woody, the executable "apache" is under /usr/sbin/apache,
which can't be executed by the default uid of apache(www-data).

I'm afraid the cgi run-time uid can't execute /usr/sbin/apache -V.
