Once configured, the server information is obtained by
mod_info is loaded 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.
In particular, this module can leak sensitive information from the configuration directives of other Apache modules such as system paths, usernames/passwords, database names, etc. Therefore, this module should only be used in a controlled environment and always with caution.
You will probably want to use
to limit access to your server configuration information.
# Allow access from server itself
Allow from 127.0.0.1
# Additionally, allow access from local workstation
Allow from 192.168.1.17
By default, the server information includes a list of all enabled modules, and for each module, a description of the directives understood by that module, the hooks implemented by that module, and the relevant directives from the current configuration.

mod_info provides its information by reading the
parsed configuration, rather than reading the original configuration
file. There are a few limitations as a result of the way the parsed
configuration tree is created:
- Directives which are executed immediately rather than being
stored in the parsed configuration are not listed. These include
- Directives which control the configuration file itself, such as
<IfDefine>are not listed, but the included configuration directives are.
- Comments are not listed. (This may be considered a feature.)
- Configuration directives from
.htaccessfiles are not listed (since they do not form part of the permanent server configuration).
- Container directives such as
<Directory>are listed normally, but
mod_infocannot figure out the line number for the closing
- Directives generated by third party modules such as mod_perl might not be listed.
