My apologies in not getting back to you sooner on this, Paul. Things
have been somewhat hectic of late. I'll respond in due course about that.
that there was indeed a chroot directory in the httpd
folder that was
presumably the offending article. Any suggestions from the floor as to how
to stop this happening again?
Don't run httpd in a chroot? Seriously -- that directory is not
officially part of the FSH/LSB so it has no official status in being
there. The only reason it would be there is if you were running part of,
or all of apache inside a choot-jail. There's perfectly good reasons why
you would want to do this -- security being the most obvious.
I can only conclude that some installer/configuration program has done
this on your behalf? Sorry I can't be anymore specific.
