Subject Re: How to enable my Apache module with root access?
Date Wed, 06 Aug 2008 23:20:45 GMT
Hi Supun,

I tried to run Apache as "root", but Apache exit out right away with a
prompt "Please rebuild httpd.exe compile with -D BIG_SECURITY_HOLE...".  I
guess Apache doesn't allow to run as root.

What else can I do?

Thanks,
Ellen
