Subject Fix DirectoryMatch to not match regular files?
Date Wed, 29 Oct 2014 11:18:25 GMT

I was trying to fix PR41867 using attached patch. While the patch seems 
to work, I'm thinking if the behaviour change introduced by the patch 
can bring some problems.

Currently, "<DirectoryMatch ^/var/www/html/private>" matches also 
"/var/www/html/private.txt" even it is a regular file and not a 
directory. With the patch, DirectoryMatch won't match "private.txt" in 
this case, because it's a file.

While I think this is excepted behaviour of DirectoryMatch, I'm not sure 
if it's acceptable change in 2.4.x branch (or even trunk?). What do you
