Subject [users@httpd] mod_alias ScriptAlias opinion please
Date Fri, 26 Mar 2004 16:02:00 GMT

On my web server the documents are stored in CVS and I serve them vith

The URL look like this :*checkout*/foo/bar/document.html

That looks ugly and is implementation dependent ( we might move the document
to ClearCase,
for example ) so simplified it to :

With this line in srm.conf :

ScriptAlias /webdocs/ /home/httpd/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/*checkout*/

apache is apache-1.3.20-16 on Red Hat Linux release 7.2 (Enigma)

What I want to know is if this line is 100% correct or it works ba accident

The script is namely /home/httpd/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi , while the /*checkout*/
part is its parameter.

Can I count on this line working with future versions of apache or should I
change it ( how ) ?

TIA, regards,
