Undocumented change in ScriptAlias

           Summary: Undocumented change in ScriptAlias
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.35
          Platform: All
               URL: http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/upgrading.html
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: fine@head-cfa.harvard.edu


When I upgraded to 2.0, my CGIs all quit working.  The first half of the
reason why this happened is due to poor documentation (the other problem
was not with documentation, see bug 8755).

Under 1.3.x, ScriptAlias had a default value of ServerRoot/cgi-bin (I know
because I had no value for ScriptAlias, but my CGIs worked).  After the
upgrade to 2.0.35, we got "File does not exist" errors for all cgi-bin files,
which was fixed by setting ScriptAlias.

The upgrade document should mention this change in behaviour.

Also these URLs should be updated:
  http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_alias.html#scriptalias
  http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_alias.html#scriptalias
The older one should mention that it has a default value, and the newer
one should mention the removal of the default.
