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):
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 Indexes MultiViews
Allow from from all
Expected Results: the httpd.conf looks like this...
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
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
