Description Kevin Ericson 2003-03-25 21:30:57 UTC

Description of problem:
When using the config tool (redhat-config-httpd) to set up virtual hosts does
not properly update httpd.conf directory options such as "MultiViews".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.0.1 R18

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start redhat-config-httpd
2. click "Virtual hosts" tab"
3. click edit (or "add")
4. select "Directories" and "add"
5. choose an option (such as MultiViews)
6. click OK, click OK, click OK and Save
7. edit httpd.conf and view results

Actual Results:  under the directory for the "virtual" host you'll not see your
options. Example
<Directory "/var/www/html/mywebsite">
        Options Indexes MultiViews        
        AllowOverride None
        Allow from from all      
        Order allow,deny

Expected Results:  the httpd.conf looks like this...
<Directory "/var/www/html/mywebsite">       
        AllowOverride None

Additional info:

The net result is that virtual websites will not display properly unless the
full URL and page name are specified (ie http://www.mywebsite.com/index.html).
The work around is to hand edit httpd.conf and add the multiview command or add
a global directive of "DirectoryIndex index.html"

and of course I swapped the "expected results" and the "actual results"...doh

Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2003-10-29 15:03:38 UTC
OK, found the problem. The Options tag was missing in the VirtualHosts directory
entry. I also found a problem with the Allow from and Deny from entries (writes
Allow from from all).

Fixed in redhat-config-httpd-1.1.0-5 and later.

Read ya, Phil
