I know there are lots of posts in every Linux forum about getting apache to work with a chroot jail, but my problem is slightly more general: I can't get anything to work with chroot: not even bash.
I followed a howto (http://www.linux.com/article.pl?sid=04/05/24/1450203) for setting up apache, which didn't work, but when I tried copying bash's shared libs and running it in the jail, it didn't work either. This all led me to believe that there was a more fundamental problem here than just apache.
I followed the above page to the letter, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Are there any errors in any of the logs? The HOWTO also says:
If something has gone wrong, you should try running your chrooted httpd with strace. The command # strace chroot /chroot/httpd /usr/sbin/httpd 2> httpd.strace redirects the output of strace to a file named httpd.strace which should give you an idea where the problem lies.
