mod_chroot allows you to run Apache in a chroot jail with no additional files.
This makes running Apache in a chroot environment easy.
The chroot() system call is performed at the end of startup procedure - when
all libraries are loaded and log files open. No need for a special directory
hierarchy (containing /dev, /lib, /etc...), unless an external handler, such
as suEXEC or suPHP, is being used, or system()-like functions are in use.
This package pre-creates /var/chroot/httpd with just enough subdirs to enable
the stock Slackware config to run. You'll need to add the following line to
your /etc/httpd/httpd.conf file:
You'll also need to add the following lines to your /etc/fstab file:
/var/run/httpd /var/chroot/httpd/var/run/httpd none bind
/srv /var/chroot/httpd/srv none bind
/var/www /var/chroot/httpd/var/www none bind
