Subject mod_vfsindex -- need some review
Date Mon, 27 Jan 2003 20:46:28 GMT

This is the virtual file system module,
meaning that you can serve context from non-file systems.

Currently it only supports zip files, but has already added support
for gzip and bzip archives.

It is based on mod_autoindex, with couple of extra lines to
mount filesystem and deliver context.
It can browse or serve context directly from zip files, or any other
virtual file system, with correct driver.

I'm planning to add the support for .iso CD images .rpm, .tar and .cpio

Simple configuration:

#Comment out the autoindex module
#LoadModule autoindex_module modules/
LoadModule vfsindex_module modules/

<Location /zipfile>
    SetHandler vfs-handler    
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    IndexOptions FancyIndexing VersionSort
    VFSMount zip /wherever/

now browse to http://localhost/zip24/
