Description Iago Rubio 2002-12-27 17:26:15 UTC
Description of problem:

When I configured Apache Virtual Host directories with apacheconf, it refuses to

It seems a silly bug as it's easy to hand solve, just a sintax error in apache.conf

The problem seems to be in the Virtual Host directories Allow and Deny sentences.

apacheconf miss the 'from' betwen Allow or Deny and the ip mask or hostname.

apache.conf extract before using apacheconf:

 	<Directory "/var/www/html/">
	 	AllowOverride none
 		Allow 10.0.0.
		Order Allow,Deny

When apache parses the first Allow it finshes with error.
Just writing the 'from' sentence it works as spected:

 	<Directory "/var/www/html/">
	 	AllowOverride none
 		Allow from 10.0.0.
		Deny from
		Order Allow,Deny
