But, if I set server_name from apache config then my apache redirecting
from other name in URL to specified name from config and this

code don`t called ;-)

Also, server adderess may be configured as bind/listen address.

Also. I think, we can use libbb/change_identity() for change gid/uid.

The code all grows and grows. But the most simple would be to make so:


. /var/www/cgi-bin/www_vars
exec your_boa_cgi

export SERVER_NAME=www.domain
export SERVER_ADDRESS=IP_inteface (or parse ifconfig out message)
