Description Eric Covener 2011-03-14 08:15:47 UTC
DocumentRoot /tmp/var/www ... <Directory /tmp/var/www/index.html> Require all denied </Directory> (or more subtly, a glob like /tmp/var/www/*, /tmp/var/www/ind*, or even /tmp/var/www/ind*/) This triggers a 403 for http://localhost/index.html The equivalent with order/allow also behaves the same way in 2.2.x. Should the directory walk have been able to realize that the target was a file and the last segment can't be compared with directory sectons? Maybe something to change before 2.4 GA? Please change to docs@ if it's as designed.
