Subject [users@httpd] How to get SSIs working
Date Fri, 16 Jan 2004 10:41:03 GMT
I have Apache 2.0.48 running on an intranet based Windows 2000 server
for testing websites prior to publishing them on our main internet
server.  I am having a little difficulty getting SSIs to work and I
can't work out why.  What I am trying to do is use the internationalised
error pages supplied with Apache (unaltered), but for some reason, it's
just not working.

All normal pages (no SSI directives) are served correctly by the server,
but for some reason, the error pages (containing the SSI directives) are
not behaving as they should - the internationalised content is correctly
displayed, but the SSIs aren't followed.  So instead, for example, of
seeing something like:

    The requested URL was not found on this server.
    If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try


I see:

    The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the
">referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author
of ">that page about the error. If you entered the URL manually please
check your spelling and try again. 

So none of the if or else statements are evaluated and also, none of the
#includes are inserted.

My httpd.conf section related to the handling of errors is attached
below.  For info, DocumentRoot is "e:/websites/intranet/" and the error
files are located in "e:/websites/intranet/error", with the path to the
included files as given in the Alias statement below.  None of the
directories in the site contains an .htaccess file.

Does anyone have any ideas where I've gone wrong?

Best regards,

Iain Cunningham
