Find Apache Root document

grep -e '^[[:blank:]]*DocumentRoot[[:blank:]]\S'
WRT the original solution: 1. I might be wrong, but it seems DocumentRoot (per Apache docs) should be spelled exactly as is, as it is case-sensitive. So using -i will return strings such as documentroot, DOCUMENTROOT,.... (which could been added as part of a comment) 2. It returns false results for such cases as DocumentRoot is embedded in a comment 3. It returns false results for such cases as OldDocumentRoot, DocumentRoot.sav, ... in a comment. Other notes: - FYI: There might be more than one valid DocumentRoot entry in the conf file (in case of using virtual host(s))
