Description Nerijus Baliūnas 2009-05-26 08:02:49 EDT
ocsinventory-reports-1.02-1.fc10.noarch has /etc/httpd/conf.d/ocsinventory-reports.conf, which includes:

# Deployment packages download area
Alias /download /var/lib/ocsinventory-reports/download

It "overwrites" /download, which is quite a popular URL part.
Comment 1 Remi Collet 2009-05-26 11:31:35 EDT
This is an upstream choice (perhaps not a best one)

All documentations refer to this URL.

Others distro also use this (debian, ...)

/etc/httpd/conf.d/ocsinventory-reports.conf provides a <VirtualHost> which is probably the best solution if the same server used for various applications (just need to be commented out).

Changing this to ocsdownload (p.e.) is really simple, and if the admin change it, he will not forget to change URL for package retrieval (which is not true if changed in the RPM).

So, this is not a bug.

If you think this a really a bug, please open a Upstream bug.
