Simple Apache chroot creation with mod_chroot

Run Apache in a chrooted environment the easy way with mod_chroot...
One way to get around the hassles of creating chroot environments is to use mod_chroot. Mod_chroot will issue the chroot() system call after the runtime linker loads dependent libraries, and Apache processes its configuration file and opens the access and error logs. Delaying the chroot() system call until after Apache is initialized can greatly reduce the amount of work required to configure the chroot environment, since libraries donít need to be copied* into the jail, and logs and configuration files can live outside of the chroot environment.
