Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm seeing some requests for "GET / HTTP/1.1" and they're showing a 200 result-- is this the root of the vhost, or the web root??

GET / is a request for the vHost (website) root, for example http://serverfault.com/
A 200 response indicates success.

so if the vhost root is /var/webstuff/mydomain/index.php that request gets index.php, correct? Not the webroot of the apache server (eg. /var/webstuff) Thanks! –  julio Mar 29 '10 at 19:23
Correct. The only way to get /var/webstuff is if that's a document root for a different domain. –  fahadsadah Mar 29 '10 at 19:46
Thanks for the help! I thought that was the case but needed to verify. –  julio Mar 29 '10 at 20:09
