Subject Order deny,allow,help,me,please
Date Tue, 12 Dec 2000 21:12:03 GMT
I'm just looking over mod_access.html to see if it can be improved,
and I'm wondering, what is the point of the Order directive anyway?  Why
doesn't Apache just evaluate each "allow" or "deny" in the order in which
they appear in the config file?

The Order directive seems to be a constant point of confusion for users,
and I'm wondering if it could be eliminated in 2.0 in favour of evaluating
everything in config-file order.  Is there a flaw in my logic somplace?
