asked on

Apache httpd.conf file sections. How is this file divided into sections?

How is the httpd.conf file broken up?

By looking at examples, I cannot tell where in an httpd.conf file one section starts and another starts.  I understand that the global section is different from other sections.  The global section can be the place to have some settings.  I believe there are distinct sections.  Are these sections discrete and marked in the file?

Is a container merely everything from the beginning of a word in <> to its closing tag?  Would this be a container?

Is a directive an assignment?  Do Apache directives in httpd.conf files go into containers necessarily?

What is a container in the context of httpd.conf files?
Never heard of that.  Where did you see that?
