Description Enrico Scholz 2000-08-14 17:46:27 EDT
In /etc/httpd.conf there is a clause

| <Location />
| ...
| </Location>

This statement has a higher priority than <Directory> directives. That's
why widely used configurations like

| <Directory "/home/*/public_html/cgi-bin">
|	Options ExecCGI
| </Directory>

won't work anymore.

I think you should move everything from <Location /> into the <Directory />
section and remove it entirely.

Changing it back for apache-1.3.12-23.
