HTTPD config file

I'm actually using version 2.4.2

I compiled this on a test machine to verify the errors I'm getting on a more complicated machine I'm upgrading to version 2.4.2

./configure \
    --prefix=/web/httpd-2.4.2 \
    --enable-ssl \
    --with-ssl=/local \
    --enable-rewrite \

With the attached httpd.conf

I create a test directory 

With .htaccess file
Options +Indexes

http://bohr.physics.utah.edu/test/ results in...

Hope you guys can help me sort this out.

in <Directory "/web/httpd-2.4.2/htdocs">

You already enable indexes
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

so it should work without .htaccess.

Does changing

AllowOverride Options


AllowOverride Options=Indexes


AllowOverride Options Indexes

makes it work for You ?

AllowOverride Options=Indexes ... This one fixes the problem

AllowOverride Options Indexes ... This one did NOT fix the problem

I was wondering if AllowOverride was confusing the core directive Options=Indexes with the mod_autoindex directive Indexes, but couldn't figure out a way to specify. I tried AllowOverrideList Indexes but that didn't work.

Guess I should read the documentation closer, I didn't see you could specify Options=

Thanks for the help!
