Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 52494] New: allow the Action directive to point in the filesystem space
Date Sun, 22 Jan 2012 01:18:33 GMT

             Bug #: 52494
           Summary: allow the Action directive to point in the filesystem
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.5-HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_actions
    Classification: Unclassified

pointing to a filesystem-space based script (e.g. /usr/lib/cgi-bin/php).
Perhaps even automatically setting the cgi-script handler for it.

The reason is:
- Convenience, one saves the use of ScriptAlias, or something similar
- Not cluttering the URI-space by paths that are "not needed" (i.e. /cgi-bin/)
- Security: hiding the interpreter cgi-scripts from the clients. They should
not need to see them and they should not be able to invoke them direclty
