Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 50328] TraceEnable off : Directive: In apache 2.2.x does not work
Date Mon, 16 Jan 2012 13:20:16 GMT

--- Comment #8 from Nick Kew <> 2012-01-16 13:20:16 UTC ---
1. I just looked.  It seems TraceEnable is allowed in a VirtualHost context,
which leaves scope for configuration errors.  Anyone who gets this should
perhaps start by checking TraceEnable Off is set at top-level.

2. Comment #5, unlike the original report, looks like valid HTTP.  I just
spotted that today.

I think there could be a real bug here: ap_send_http_trace is a map_to_storage
hook with priority APR_HOOK_MIDDLE.  map_to_storage is RUN_FIRST, which opens
the possibility of never checking for TraceEnable if another module gets in
first.  And we could already be in an errordocument before we hit

If someone can post an actual config that provokes this, please reopen.  Though
the apparent bug is nothing to do with TraceEnable, rather it's the TRACE
method being treated as a regular GET/HEAD.
