Subject [users@httpd] problem with indexing directories
Date Wed, 11 Jun 2003 15:47:41 GMT

I am the Systems Administrator at a University and currenly run an 
apache server on Tru64 4.0f.  I currently am running 1.3.27.  I also 
host a site on a linux box for students and it runs Redhat 9.0 and 
apache 2.0.46.  I have noticed a difference in the two versions that I 
cant seem to get around and need your help......

On the 1.3.27 version I have a home directory which has lot of file and 
directories.  Some of the directories have .htaccess files inside them 
which require a password to see the contents.  If you go to say 
www.whatever/~myusername  you get a complete listing of all files and 
*all* directories which is what I want.

On the 2.0.46 server I have the same setup and copied the entire 
contents from the 1.3.27 side to this side.  If I go to 
www.server2/~myusername you get a listing of all files and only 
directories which dont have a .htaccess file in them.  This seems to be 
a change in the two versions and I am wondering how to get all 
directories displayed even the ones with .htaccess files in them.

httpd.conf file has this:
<Directory "/usr/local/etc/httpd/htdocs">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All

.htaccess file has this:
AuthUserFile  blah blah
AuthName "blah blah"
AuthType Basic
Require user dlc

If you put the complete path name to that directory in then it asks for 
a password like it should.  It just doesnt show that directory in the 
listing .......why?

Thanks for any help!
