Subject Add AllowOverride Indexes to default public_html?
Date Sat, 03 Aug 2002 09:48:41 GMT
Is there a reason that public_html dirs do not allow an override
for Indexes by default?

The problem is that if I add IndexIgnore in a .htaccess file in my
public_html dir, I get a 500 error.  I think the 500 error is bogus
(should be silently ignored), but the fact that I can't override
the indexes is also bogus.  This is exactly the case I'm seeing
on daedalus:

Mainly, I think the following patch should be applied and the
configuration on daedalus changed as well.  And, even if this
shouldn't be the default, I move to make it the configuration on
daedalus because I want to control mod_autoindex's output for
certain directories in my public_html dir.  -- justin
