Subject [users@httpd] Security & Case sensitivity in Windows
Date Wed, 19 Mar 2003 17:30:28 GMT
I've got Apache 1.3.26 for Win32 (yes, I know I should upgrade to 1.3.27..)

Trying to limit access to certain URIs I have a configuration like this:

#blah blah
<Location /admin/>
	order deny,allow
	deny from all
	allow from

On the face of it this should restrict access to the 
'' directory

In fact, it DOES restrict access to that folder, BUT it does NOT restrict 
access to '' This would be fine on Unix file systems, 
but not on Windows ones, where /admin/ and /Admin/ are the same.

- is there a way to make Apache not case sensitive when checking 
Location/LocationMatch directives
- would upgrading to 2.0.44 solve the problem (I can't see anything obvious 
in the change log, but case insensitivity may have slipped in anyway)
- or have I found a new problem....
