Simplifying Apache chroot creation with mod_chroot

Wednesday, 28 November 2007, 9:48 AM EST

Building and maintaining Apache chroot environments can be a royal pain. Creating a chroot environment for Apache requires you to first identify all the libraries and applications that are required to run the httpd processes. Once you identify the dependencies, you need to create a chroot environment that contains these files.

After you successfully create the chroot environment, you need to update it when security and reliability updates are released. This can be a time consuming process, and even though several tools (e.g., mock, makejail, etc.) exist to ease this process, there is still a fair amount of work that needs to occur to get things running properly.
