Description Simon Wheeler 2002-04-18 02:27:19 UTC
AcceptPathInfo set to on or default does not appear to work as expected (at 
all) on win32/2k/xp this is on a default win32 binary install with standard 
wherever/ however it is used it is ignored a 404 is generated rather than the 
expected lookback in the REQUEST_URI 

somehost.com/this.htm/var1/var2/ results in a 404 rather than this.htm+PATH_INFO

I just tried this on FreeBSD (daedalus to be specific) and I get the same thing.
Here is what I did: placed an .htaccess file in my public_html directory
containing only
AcceptPathInfo On
then requested the file
which gives a 404 even though index.html exisists.

Perhaps I missunderstand this directive entirely, but I thought it should allow
the request in that case.

This has been fixed for 2.0.36.  Thanks for using Apache!
