 Chrooting Apache

"Installing Apache in a chroot jail does not make Apache itself any more secure. Rather, it serves to restrict the access of Apache and its child processes to a small subset of the filesystem. The advantage in chrooting a process is not in preventing a breakin, but rather in containing a potential threat. Before deciding whether you need to chroot your Web server you should consider the advantages and disadvantages of such a setup."
