Yeah, OBSD runs a chrooted apache by default. It can be overridden in
some config file in /etc, I forget which. FWIW though, I thought it'd be
much harder to set up than it was. I have perl cgi scripts and php
running in the chrooted environment. Some things (like apache mod, I
think) load before the chroot, so it's not so tough. worth trying anyway.
I'd be running OBSD on my SS20 if it supported muptiple procs. I
understand it does not, so I have NetBSD installed and compiled a
GENERIC.MP kernel. Love it.
