What is your "root" directive for the server?
Remember, it's relative to the chroot.

You might be better off having /usr hold your /usr,
and have a biug separate /var/www for your web content.
Then you can leave httpd chroot the default.

Without -d, the httpd deamonizes into the background,
and the boot goes on. With -d, it stays running in the
foreground; only after you kill it, the boot will go on.
