Subject Problem with Alias to UNC Path on Windows
Date Tue, 09 Apr 2002 15:24:02 GMT
I am having sporadic problems with files contained in a UNC share on
windows. I am running 2.0.35. The directory contains temporary files
(images) and is aliased to /temp/ with the following directive:

Alias /temp/ "//xserv/temp"

I get the following error:

[Tue Apr 09 10:58:06 2002] [error] [client] (20024)The given path
misformatted or contained invalid characters: dir_walk error, could not
determine the root path of filename
//xserv/temp/1018364286507080078.gif//xserv/temp/1018364286507080078.gif for
uri /temp/1018364286507080078.gif

The problem appears at random (one out of five legitimate requests fails
with 404) and seems to be specific to 2.0.35.

Am i using the right directive or is this a bug?

Thanks and Regards. Fred.
