From Derrick Beery <derrick.be...@itd.state.ia.us>
Subject URL containing non-existant path is served by Apache 1.3.26 on AI X 4.3.3
Date Thu, 20 Jun 2002 15:49:41 GMT
Hello,

On our server, running v 1.3.26 of Apache on AIX 4.3.3, there is a directory
within the document root of a site, that is not a VirtualHost, called
/web/government/dgs/Purchase.

Within this directory, are 2 .htm documents: exhibita.htm and exhibitb.htm.
Neither an exhibita nor an exhibitb subdirectory exists with the directory.
If one types the following URL, however, Apache serves it:

http://www.state.ia.us/government/dgs/Purchase/exhibita/exhibita.htm

As well as this one:

http://www.state.ia.us/government/dgs/Purchase/exhibita/exhibita/exhibita.ht
m

We have found that these URLS can contain an arbitrary number of these
subdirectories. 

The same behavior is true for exhibitb URL

http://www.state.ia.us/government/dgs/Purchase/exhibitb/exhibitb.htm

http://www.state.ia.us/government/dgs/Purchase/exhibitb/exhibitb/exhibitb.ht
m

And so on...

These are the only URLs we have identified thus far for which this is
happening.


Below is a piece of code that comes from the exhibita.htm file.
 
@page Section1
	{size:8.5in 11.0in;
	margin:1.0in 67.5pt 1.0in .5in;
	mso-header-margin:.3in;
	mso-footer-margin:.2in;
	mso-header:url("./ExhibitA/header.htm") h1;
	mso-footer:url("./ExhibitA/header.htm") f1;
	mso-paper-source:0;}
div.Section1



And from the exhibitb.htm file.

@page Section1
	{size:8.5in 11.0in;
	margin:.7in 1.0in .7in 1.0in;
	mso-header-margin:.5in;
	mso-footer-margin:.5in;
	mso-header:url("./ExhibitB/header.htm") h1;
	mso-footer:url("./ExhibitB/header.htm") f1;
	mso-paper-source:0;}


I would be very if someone could help shed some light on this issue; Or even
better, tell us the cause.
