User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
Around line 210 of httpd.conf, it states:

### Section 2: 'Main' server configuration
# The directives in this section set up the values used by the 'main'
# server, which responds to any requests that aren't handled by a
# <VirtualHost> definition.  These values also provide defaults for
# any <VirtualHost> containers you may define later in the file.
# All of these directives may appear inside <VirtualHost> containers,
# in which case these default settings will be overridden for the
# virtual host being defined.

this is then immediately followed by the section for User and Group
settings, which CANNOT be used inside a <VirtualHost>.

not really a big deal, but confusing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Look in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf beyond line 210
2. read the text

Actual Results:  User and group section is in 'Main' Server config

Expected Results:  User and group section in 'Global' config section.
