on my production webservers:

www1:~ ] mount | grep apache
/dev/hda11 on /usr/local/apache type ext2 (rw,nosuid,nodev)
/dev/hda12 on /usr/local/apache/htdocs type ext2 (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev)

apache itself is chroot()'d into /usr/local/apache.

(i hadn't considered noatime.  it's not an issue at the load these
machines have.  as an aside, does noatime matter on a ro filesystem?)

soon, there's going to be a ramdisk at /usr/local/apache/tmp (or so) mounted
ro,noexec,nosuid to give cgis a place to write tempfiles.  we're
fighting hard with marketing to keep the site static, but we're losing.
