Is there any way to display the effective configuration values that Apache is using?

I have a cPanel server that uses multiple include files and there are some server-wide settings that are defined in multiple places. I'd like to find a way of confirming which value Apache is actually using while it's running.

mod_info provides what you need, I think.

<Location /server-info>
   SetHandler server-info
   Order deny,allow
   Deny from all
   Allow from # your IP, subnet, whatever

More here:

You can also list the configuration of your VirtualHosts (less info than using the above) using the command sudo httpd -S.

    Lucky me, mod_info was already compiled in too. – Dave Forgac Jul 18 '09 at 18:37
  • +1 It works like a charm! For the beginners like me, I would also remember to load the mod_info module in httpd.conf by adding the line: LoadModule info_module modules/ – Marco Demaio Nov 20 '15 at 11:39
