AddHandler/Action not-found when file does not exist





------- Additional Comments From slive@apache.org  2002-04-30 18:24 -------

1. The behavior in 1.3 was wrong.  AddHandler maps *files* to handlers.  If
the file does not exist in the apache webspace, then there is nothing to
map.  I am fairly confident that the new behavior is clearer and more
consistent.  (The old behavior had various bad side-effects like handlers
needing to deal with 404 errors on their own, rather than using the internal
404 handler.)

2. I think you misunderstand how ScriptAlias works.  That should be taken
up on the users mailing list, not here.

3. I don't see any problem or inconsistency with the fact that an empty file
works.  The handler can deal with the empty file however it wants.  The fact
that your handler completely ignores the file and finds a new file to serve
from outside the webspace is a design decision on your part.

In any case, I think we are beyond the scope of the bug database.  If you'd
like to argue about the design decision, dev@httpd.apache.org is the place to
go.  If you want further configuration help, users@httpd.apache.org is the
place.

Thanks for using Apache!
