I am planning to restrict apache to a spesific directory. But I am not sure 
if to install apache in chroot env or making a FreeBSD jail install ( say 
/usr/jail/freebsd_jail_ip). Which one is recommended for better security ? 

An artilcele in http://www.haught.org/freebsdapache.php says jail is better 
that just chroot environment. But I want to be sure to have your opinions 
about it and want be sure which one is better.
