Running in a chroot prison limits the damage than can be done should an application be compromised. See chroot(2) for details. Apache2 has better support for this.
Can't get much better than this! From the Ubuntu forums:
apt-get install apache2 apache2-ssl-certificate -days 3650
and answer the questions. It will default to 30 days if you don't specify your own number!
cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/default /etc/apache2/sites-available/ssl a2ensite ssl
"/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ssl" should look like this:
NameVirtualHost *:443 <VirtualHost *:443> (... configure the directories too...)
SSLEngine On SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/apache.pem
/etc/init.d/apache2 force-reload and you're away.
You can have additional information displayed at the top and bottom of a mod_autoindex directory listing by putting the text in a file called HEADER and README, respectively. Either file can any have FileExtension (or none). To enable this feature, you will need MultiViews on to be in effect for that request.
Listen :::80 BindAddress ::
If you want a VirtualHost available on both IPv4 and IPv6, then give it a name that resolves to both a v4 and v6 address. It won't work if you give use a name that doesn't have a v6 address, and then try to use ServerName or ServerAlias. Eg:
$ host wlug.org.nz wlug.org.nz A 126.96.36.199 $ host -t aaaa wlug.org.nz wlug.org.nz AAAA record currently not present $ host -t a www.wlug.org.nz www.wlug.org.nz CNAME hoiho.wlug.org.nz hoiho.wlug.org.nz A 188.8.131.52 $ host -t aaaa www.wlug.org.nz www.wlug.org.nz CNAME hoiho.wlug.org.nz hoiho.wlug.org.nz AAAA 2002:CB61:A32:0:0:0:0:1
<VirtualHost wlug.org.nz:80> ServerName www.wlug.org.nz ServerAlias wlug.org.nz ServerAlias www2.wlug.org.nz ...
(Apache can't resolve wlug.org.nz to an IPv6 address, so this vhost won't be available via ipv6.)
<VirtualHost www.wlug.org.nz:80> ServerName www.wlug.org.nz ServerAlias wlug.org.nz ServerAlias www2.wlug.org.nz ...

Each time that the reload fails, there is a message about accept_mutex_on or accept_mutex_off: Invalid argument in the error.log file that isn't present when the reload succeeds.
Also note the logrotate runs the 'postrotate' section (in apache's case, the reload) every day, even if it only rotates the log files every week.
