Bug 45302

Summary: ServerRoot directive
Product: Apache httpd-2 Reporter: Isakov Alexandr <satana.hell>
Component: mod_vhost_aliasAssignee: Apache HTTPD Bugs Mailing List <bugs>
Severity: enhancement Keywords: MassUpdate

Version: 2.2.9   
Target Milestone: ---   
Hardware: PC   
OS: Linux   

Description Isakov Alexandr 2008-06-28 00:02:48 UTC
I propose to add ServerRoot directive to the module configuration. Only one example of benefits:

VirtualDocumentRoot /var/www/vhosts/%-2.0.%-1/%-3+/htdocs
VirtualServerRoot /var/www/vhosts/%-2.0.%-1/%-3+

<Directory /var/www>
	Options		ExecCGI FollowSymlinks
	AllowOverride	All
	Order		allow,deny
	Allow		from all
	Dav On
	AuthType Basic
	AuthName DAV-access
	AuthUserFile .passwd
		Require valid-user

This will allow WebDAV access to each VirtualHost  using .passwd file in it ServerRoot.

P.S. May be it would be better to completely replace current VirtualDocumentRoot directive by VirtualServerRoot directive and add some directives providing relative paths to VirtualServerRoot: VirtualCustomLog, VirtualErrorLog, VirtualDocumentRoot e.t.c.?

Please help us to refine our list of open and current defects; this is a mass update of old and inactive Bugzilla reports which reflect user error, already resolved defects, and still-existing defects in httpd.

As repeatedly announced, the Apache HTTP Server Project has discontinued all development and patch review of the 2.2.x series of releases. The final release 2.2.34 was published in July 2017, and no further evaluation of bug reports or security risks will be considered or published for 2.2.x releases. All reports older than 2.4.x have been updated to status RESOLVED/LATER; no further action is expected unless the report still applies to a current version of httpd.

If your report represented a question or confusion about how to use an httpd feature, an unexpected server behavior, problems building or installing httpd, or working with an external component (a third party module, browser etc.) we ask you to start by bringing your question to the User Support and Discussion mailing list, see [https://httpd.apache.org/lists.html#http-users] for details. Include a link to this Bugzilla report for completeness with your question.

If your report was clearly a defect in httpd or a feature request, we ask that you retest using a modern httpd release (2.4.33 or later) released in the past year. If it can be reproduced, please reopen this bug and change the Version field above to the httpd version you have reconfirmed with.

Your help in identifying defects or enhancements still applicable to the current httpd server software release is greatly appreciated.
