server-parsed documents served with additional path info





------- Additional Comments From wrowe@apache.org  2003-01-30 15:57 -------

  To be very precise, AcceptPathInfo Default causes the path info to be accepted
  by the corresponding handler by it's specific preference.

  So most content generators, such as CGI, PHP, and SSI (because SSI may nest 
  other generators) default to accepting path info.  The core static content
  handler defaults to rejecting path info.  But any of these may be overriden
  with AcceptPathInfo to tollerate or reject such requests.

  For disambigiating URIs I strong believe in setting AcceptPathInfo Off within
  the root of the server, and setting up AcceptPathInfo On only for the scripts
  and content which *uses* the path info (e.g. a viewcvs.cgi style script.)
  But that's religion and advocacy.  In order to prevent *breaking* all of the
  deployed 1.3.x servers as they migrated to 2.0.x, the team elected to keep
  the behavior as similar as possible to Apache 1.3's behavior.
