Subject SetVirtualDocumentRoot
Date Wed, 10 Nov 2010 15:35:24 GMT
I was reading bug reports this morning, and wondered if someone could  
take a look at the patch offered here:

https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=26052#c19

It adds a SetVirtualDocumentRoot configuration directive to  
mod_vhost_alias, making numerous third-party applications behave  
sanely when run under mod_vhost_alias.

I've read the various justifications why we don't do this, and quite  
frankly I don't understand them. Is there a legitimate reason that  
setting DOCUMENT_ROOT on a per-dynamic-vhost basis is any different/ 
worse than setting it on a per-regular-vhost basis? I don't understand  
the distinction, other than "we've never done it that way."

Thanks.
