Subject [users@httpd] HTTPS breaks DirectoryIndex in .htaccess?
Date Mon, 22 Mar 2004 19:08:13 GMT
In my /var/www/ directory, I've got a
.htaccess file containing the line:

DirectoryIndex index.php

Using Internet Explorer, if I connect to, I see the index.php file
correctly (in that it redirects me to the webmail's login.php file).

If I connect to, the
DirectoryIndex line doesn't kick in, and I see the list of files instead.

I've got the following in my httpd.conf file:

<VirtualHost _default_>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/

    <Directory /var/www/>
        AllowOverride All
</VirtualHost> the AllowOverride line appears to be working when accessed via HTTP,
but not when accessed by HTTPS.

What am I doing wrong?  Note that 'flimsy' is a test box: it's not an
Internet-facing box.
