Description Jari Aalto 2004-09-07 16:57:09 UTC

  After doing this:
  ln -s /srv/version-control/cvs/this-host/apache /etc/apache2/my

  This will not load the file, because "my" dir is a symlink.
  Include /etc/apache2/my/server.conf


   Manual [1] is silent about the treatment of symlinks with Include directive.
   error.log with "debug" indicates nothing. apache2 -t displays no errors. 

   I think the symlinks should be obeyed.
