Sorry about the problems with the site, I've been fucking around with it trying to get the goddamned suexec to work, so I could run the main daemon as 'nobody' instead of 'jcomeau' and still have my permissions on CGI scripts setup like before. What a pisser. Finally got it just about sorted, though I'll probably be cleaning up for a while. I had to do that so I could set up WebDAV to run Subversion, a mo-betta CVS than CVS. It's always the same thing, you have to do this so you can do this so you can do that, and there are problems every fucking step of the way. ARRRGGHHHH! OK, that felt better.

My final httpd configuration:

$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/httpd --enable-ssl --enable-suexec --enable-dav=yes --enable-so=yes --enable-info --with-suexec-caller=nobody --with-suexec-docroot=/home

This is Apache-2.0.49 so don't try this with an Apache-1.3 installation!

Now to see what I've gotta do to get WebDAV working...
