Subject svn commit: r433023 - in /httpd/httpd/branches/2.0.x/docs/manual/mod: mod_alias.html.en mod_alias.xml
Date Sun, 20 Aug 2006 19:47:20 GMT
Author: slive

New Revision: 433023

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=433023&view=rev
Log:
Backport:
My last effort was a little too succinct and not quite precise
enough.  Try being more explicit.

This does leave the danger that people will clip the <Location>
example as the proper way to do things, when they should be
reading on to the <Directory> example.  The <Location> example
is only correct when used in conjunction with Alias.
