Well, I'm not too sure what your actually doing because what you posted 
appears to be an apache log but to answer your question concerning 
environment variables, yes of course the handling of environment 
variables are different when run from init. Generally whatever launches 
daemons (there are different mechanisms) will not pass environment 
variables to the daemon. This is for security reasons. If memory serves 
me correctly there are a handful of special environment variables that 
do get passed, but in general the answer is system daemons with root 
privileges execute in a clean environment.
