Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 50354] clearify ModMimeUsePathInfo documentation
Date Sun, 28 Nov 2010 22:10:21 GMT

--- Comment #1 from Igor Galić <> 2010-11-28 17:10:19 EST ---
I think the confusion starts with:

"""If you have a request for /bar/foo.shtml where /bar is a Location and
ModMimeUsePathInfo is On"""

Given that it's not linked to the <Location> documentation, and not put in
<code> either, but still written with a a capital ``L'' is very confusing.

I think the example would be much more clear if we added something like:

<Location /bar>
  AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
  ModMimeUsePathInfo On

If /bar is part of your application, that for some obscure reason produces
.shtml output, httpd will now parse it.

Or how about:

<Location /bar>
    AddOutputFilter DEFLATE .html
    ModMimeUsePathInfo On

Adding now .html to your fancy SEO URLs will have your content compressed on
the fly.

Of course the same is valid if you have Links like

<Files index.php>
  AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
  AddOutputFilter DEFLATE .html
  ModMimeUsePathInfo On


Does that make more sense now? Should I add that to the docs?
