Subject [users@httpd] 2.0.51, httpd.conf, Regex could not be compiled
Date Fri, 24 Sep 2004 18:35:09 GMT
I tried upgrading from 2.0.49 to .51 today.

Everything seemed to go OK; ./configure didnt die, nor did make.
But when I started the .51 binary, I received:

Syntax error on line 447 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf
Regex could not be compiled

Line 447:
<Files ~ "*Susie_Sorrento*">

I did a 'httpd -l' on both the .49 and .51 binaries and they have the same
modules (with the exception of adding --enable-log-forensic for .51)

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache --enable-v4-mapped --enable-log-forensic --enable-expires
--enable-headers --enable-unique-id --enable-ssl --enable-static-support --enable-static-rotatelogs
--enable-static-logresolve --enable-info --enable-cgi --enable-speling --enable-rewrite --with-ssl=/usr/local/ssl

So what happened between .49 and .51 that regex could not be complied?
I wouldnt think that --enable-log-forensic would cause the problem
though Im going to try removing that anyway.

Thanks in advance
