About alias mapping the /

           Summary: About alias mapping the /
           Product: Apache httpd-1.3
           Version: 1.3.23
          Platform: Other
               URL: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/misc/rewriteguide.html
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: Other
         Component: Documentation

        ReportedBy: eloi.granado@millorsoft.es


Where it states: 
"We just redirect the URL / to /e/www/. While is seems trivial it is actually trivial with

mod_rewrite, only. Because the typical old mechanisms of URL Aliases (as provides by 
mod_alias and friends) only used prefix matching. With this you cannot do such a 
redirection because the DocumentRoot is a prefix of all URLs." 
 
Actually, I did try this time ago. Redirecting / did segfault the httpd process, but 
RedirectMatch ^/$ did work perfectly. 
 
Just my 2cents. :P
