'Parent directory' link improvement ('IndexIgnoreRemove')

           Summary: 'Parent directory' link improvement
                    ('IndexIgnoreRemove')
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.47
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: mod_autoindex
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: rfaura@bassy.net


I'm going to put here the summary of a very recent Apache users mailing list 
discussion about mod_autoindex between Robert Andersson and me, Rafael Faura:

1) [Rafael Faura] --> I'm using Apache 2.0.47 with Windows 2003 Standard 
Edition. Before posting to this mailing list i've readed Apache docs 2.1 
(http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.1/) and searched Google for possible answers 
but without luck. My question is related with dynamic listings that Apache show 
when somebody access to a directory that doesn't have an 'index' file. I have 
the next folder structure:


CAE
|
|_ Updates
   |
   |_ Old


I want that 'Updates' and 'Old' listings have a 'Parent Directory' link on
top (as usual) but i don't want that 'CAE' listing show that 'Parent
Directory' link. I've tried several configurations with 'IndexIgnore ..'
option into 'CAE', 'Updates' and 'Old' directives but without luck. I'm out
of ideas...


2) [Robert Andersson] --> It seems you're out of luck. You can disable the 
parent entry by using "IndexIgnore ..", but as far as I can see, there is no 
way "unignore" it.

mod_autoindex is intentionally not very flexible, because what it does is soo 
simple. If you really don't want the parent entry in the listing, you can make 
a Perl or PHP script rather quick, that behaves and look exactly like you want.


3) [Rafael Faura] --> Well, seems like I should learn some PHP and Perl to make 
such script, anyway thanks for your reply. Maybe a little suggestion for future 
Apache/mod_autoindex versions: allow to put 'Parent Directory' link per 
directory instead how is done now (parent entry always appears).


4) [Robert Andersson] --> The problem is not specific to the "parent directory" 
entry, but general in that (it seems) one cannot remove entries previously 
added to the IndexIgnore list higher up in the directory tree. There should 
perhaps be an "IndexIgnoreRemove" directive, in which case you could do:

    <Directory /path/to/docroot/CAE>
        Options +Indexes
        IndexIgnore ..
    </Directory>
    <Directory /path/to/docroot/CAE/Updates>
        IndexIgnoreRemove ..
    </Directory>
