Subject Re: WWW Form Bug Report: "Missing <Limit GET> </Limit> in the conf/access.conf file" on Solaris 2.x (fwd)
Date Wed, 10 Jul 1996 05:06:45 GMT

Hi - before releasing 1.1 we realised that the distributed access.conf
file was a tad confusing with respect to what did what - in particular,
use of the <Limit> directive was unclear in that a <Limit GET> did *not*
protect against POST, HEAD, PUT, or other types of methods in that
directory.  By removing the <Limit> directives we were basically saying
<Limit *>... so I'm confused as to why you claim you need those lines, and
*particularly* confused as to why you would need them for .htaccess files
to work.
