Subject [users@httpd] Newbie Config Question
Date Tue, 24 Feb 2004 17:09:40 GMT
I am trying to configure my server to use the Metadot portal. I manually
set things up and made the following changes to the httpd.conf file (from
[root@safer-test conf]# diff httpd.conf *.orig<br>
&lt; DocumentRoot &quot;/safer/metadot/metadot/html&quot;<br>
&gt; DocumentRoot &quot;/usr/local/apache/htdocs&quot;<br><br>
&lt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; DirectoryIndex index.html<br>
&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; DirectoryIndex index.html<br><br>
&lt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; # Metadot aliases<br>
&lt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Alias /images/&nbsp;&nbsp;
&lt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Alias
&lt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Alias /metadot/&nbsp;
&lt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Alias /public/&nbsp;&nbsp;
&lt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &lt;Location &quot;/metadot/&quot;&gt;<br>
&lt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; SetHandler
&lt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; PerlHandler Apache::Registry<br>
&lt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Options +ExecCGI<br>
&lt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &lt;/Location&gt;<br>
&lt; <br><br>
When I restarted the server everything ran just fine (i.e., I could
access all content under the ./metatdot directory). I then shut my system
down and rebooted. Now when I try to get to
<a href="" eudora="autourl"></a>,
I get a 404 error. The info from the logs is<br><br>
access_log:<br><br> - - [24/Feb/2004:11:05:47 -0600] &quot;GET /metadot/
HTTP/1.1&quot; 404<br>
1040 &quot;-&quot; &quot;Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US;
rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830&quot;<br><br>
[Tue Feb 24 11:05:47 2004] [error] [client] File does not
exist: /var/www/html/metadot <br><br>
So, the question is, why isn't Apache looking in
/safer/metadot/metatdot/metadot? Shouldn't the <br><br>
Alias /metadot/&nbsp; /safer/metadot/metadot/metadot/<br><br>
directive override the /var/www/html default?<br><br>
