Subject Re: httpd.conf cleanup
Date Tue, 28 May 1996 02:11:12 GMT


I'm including the whole message in the reply since I didn't see much 
conversation about this.

I really like this rewrite, and it's really easy to slip this into the 
distribution before 1.1 final.  I give it a +1 - if a couple others could 
look at this and validate it that'd be great, our current one needs 
serious help.

The only change I might wish for is to place the proxy config stuff in a 
separate .conf file.  But for that it would be much nicer if there was a 
general inclusion mechanism, something like Randy's vhost-directory 
ideas...
