Description Mike Cramer 2002-12-05 16:11:38 UTC
In httpd-2.0, mod_dir uses ap_internal_fast_redirect once it has found an
appropriate file from the DirectoryIndex list. This change makes it impossible
to use mod_rewrite's proxypass feature on an index file. mod_dir finds the file,
but returns its source instead of the output of the proxypass. The fix is to
revert mod_dir back to its old behavior, which is to start up an entirely new
subrequest once it finds the proper index file.
