You don't need root access to configure/install httpi.
I would avoid it in general.

I guess this might be why you used sudo. But you can also write into
your home directory and move it later. Moving about the htdocs is a more
annoying, but the configured server can be shifted about at any time.

Okay same idea, you can have it serve htdocs from anywhere.
On our systems, I generally configure it to be something like ~/htdocs,
since my home-directories are shared *and* backed up nightly,
whereas /usr/local is, well, local.

Okay this is where it should be looking for things later when resolving
the url /xmlqstat/.
This also means that your config.xml would be found here:

Okay, but that is a really generous timeout for the GridEngine to
