Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 24243] mod_autoindex enhancement ('IndexIgnoreRemove' option)
Date Tue, 08 Apr 2008 23:26:51 GMT

Dear Apache. I am but a lowly .htaccess user.

The good people at my hosting company have made dot files invisible.

This is great in general, however as I am a Unix expert, I wish to
share some of my dot files via my website, however there is no way,
thanks to the poor design of your agglutinative IndexIgnore.

Yes, even with the best wishes of my hosting company, there is no way
of me turning dot files back on without them having to embed a special
case for my directory in their configuration.

Therefore, you need two levels:
IndexIgnore and IndexIgnoreManditory,
or IndexIgnoreFlexible and IndexIgnore.

OK, as of course you will not give in to my demands, please still in
apache2-doc/manual/en/mod/mod_autoindex.html#indexignore document that
there is no way to reset or remove items from IndexIgnore. Without you
mentioning that there is no way, users will go on wild goose chases
