Hi Folks,

I have apache running in my testing env. iam trying to figure out which httpd.conf is responsible for apache. so i did
/usr/ucb/ps auxww | grep httpd
minous 6674  0.0  0.0 7528 4216 ?        S   Mar 19  0:07 /apps/tigger/tigger-v1.6.0/bin/httpd.2.0.59-solaris/bin/httpd -f /apps/tigger/tigger-v1.6.0/minous/deployment/apache/conf/httpd.conf -E /apps/tigger/tigger-v1.6.0/minous/deployment/apache/logs/stderr.log -k start -DtiggerProcess=apache

does this mean:
1) httpd.conf file is located at /apps/tigger/tigger-v1.6.0/minous/deployment/apache/conf/httpd.conf ?
2)httpd binary located at apps/tigger/tigger-v1.6.0/bin/httpd.2.0.59-solaris/bin/httpd ?
3) what "-k" means?
4)when i checked the above httpd.conf i found:
ServerRoot "/apps/aqueduct/tigger/tigger-v1.6.0/minous/deployment/apache"

Does this mean apache home is apps/aqueduct/tigger/tigger-v1.6.0/minous/deployment/apache ?
If yes,then why the ps out showing httpd location to different place? or serverroot directive doesnt matter?

Please help
Thank you,
Joe

1. Yes:  the -f filename indicates the configuration file.
2. Yes.
3. The "-k start" indicates the signal sent to httpd.

4. From a typical httpd.conf:
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.

DocumentRoot can be set to something else, and this is where the files are served out of.
