[APACHE DOCUMENTATION]

Apache module mod_env

This module is contained in the mod_env.c file, and is not compiled in by default. It provides for passing environment variables to CGI/SSI scripts. Is is only available in Apache 1.1 and later.

Summary

This module allows Apache's CGI and SSI environment to inherit environment variables from the shell which invoked the httpd process. CERN web-servers are able to do this, so this module is especially useful to web-admins who wish to migrate from CERN to Apache without rewriting all their scripts
