Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 50545] New: mod_alias trailing slashes
Date Wed, 05 Jan 2011 16:53:46 GMT

           Summary: mod_alias trailing slashes
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.17
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation

The current mod_alias documentation says the following:
Note that if you include a trailing / on the url-path then the server will
require a trailing / in order to expand the alias. That is, if you use

    Alias /icons/ /usr/local/apache/icons/

then the url /icons will not be aliased.

Can I suggest the following text be added?
In both the alias locations, the trailing slash is very important - so
regardless of you having a trailing slash in your alias*, you must also have
one after the full path.
