Module mod_info

This module is contained in the mod_info.c file. It provides a comprehensive overview of the server configuration including all installed modules and directives in the configuration files. This module is not compiled into the server by default. It is only available in Apache 1.1 and later. To enable it, add the following line to the server build Configuration file, and rebuild the server:
Module info_module   mod_info.o

To configure it, add the following to your access.conf file.

<Location /server-info>
SetHandler server-info
You may wish to add a <Limit> clause inside the location directive to limit access to your server configuration information.

Once configured, the server information is obtained by accessing http://your.host.dom/server-info

Note that the configuration files are read by the module at run-time, and therefore the display may not reflect the running server's active configuration if the files have been changed since the server was last reloaded. Also, the configuration files must be readable by the user as which the server is running (see the User directive), or else the directive settings will not be listed.

It should also be noted that if mod_info is compiled into the server, its handler capability is available in all configuration files, including per-directory files (e.g., .htaccess). This may have security-related ramifications for your site.
