Description Greg Bunker 2003-05-23 13:04:34 UTC
Description of problem:
This is an out of the box install of redhat 9.0, custom, with the webserver 
and dev tools selected.  Upon configuration of the apache webserver and 
bringing up the ErrorIndex default page as configured, the documentation is 
not accessible from the default page.  I have found this to be because 
the /manual directory is setup for language extension negotiation but without 
the MultiViews option for the /manuals directory, the index page (and 
subsequent pages) are not retreivable.  I corrected this by including the 
<Directory "/var/www/manual"> information from the base .conf file as 
distributed by apache.org.  Shouldn't this option be available for the redhat 
distribution of the apache server?  If so, the basic conf file used by the 
configuration tool should be modified to generate the correct options so that 
language negotiation with the browser is available.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
redhat v9.0, apache distribution is 2.040 (I believe).

How reproducible:
All the time unless MultiViews option included in the .conf file for 
the /manuals directory.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install linux and apache out of the box.
2. Minimal configuration requirements (install script) after the install.
3. Point browser to server, get the basic ErrorIndex.html screen saying 
that "If you can read this your install was good".
4. Attempt to follow the documentation link and it will fail with page not 
found because language selection is not enabled.
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info: This was initially reported to installation support as 
service request #237041.  They referred me to this site since it probably is a 
distribution configuration bug.

In the lastest Fedora Core versions the original httpd.conf we ship
doesn't reference to the manual anymore, so i'm closing this as not a
bug as the need for a reference to the manual has gone.

Read ya, Phil
