Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45259] New: Add /home/[a-z]/* scheme to UserDir conf
Date Mon, 23 Jun 2008 15:17:00 GMT

           Summary: Add /home/[a-z]/* scheme to UserDir conf
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.9
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_userdir

Currently the UserDir directive support various schemes like:

 * UserDir public_html      -> ~bar/public_html/one/two.html
 * UserDir /usr/web         -> /usr/web/bar/one/two.html
 * UserDir /home/*/www     -> /home/bar/www/one/two.html

Each of them having different advantages. The last two have the major
advantage, that no local user has to be present on the web server machine to
rewrite the requests. Unfortunately, those schemes do not offer a flexible
rewrite policy.

In scenarios with a lot of different users, home directories are often
separated in different parent directories named by the first letter of the
username, e.g. /home/b/bar.

It would be really helpful to have a configuration rule to define such UserDir
rewrite. For example:

 * UserDir /home/_/*/      -> /home/b/bar/one/two.html

Thanks for you work!
