"OpenBSD recently changed the mode of operation for the Apache webserver from the normal non-chrooted operation to chrooted operation. This enhances the security of the server on which Apache is run but it imposes a few challenges to the system administrator.Very cool, Marc, glad to see someone is showing others how to make use of this feature while still serving up complex content. Thanks!
In this article Marc Balmer discusses selected aspects of running a chrooted HTTP daemon and present strategies on how to set up a chrooted environment for more complex applications like database access or using CGI-scripts."
