Subject Re: [users@httpd] Bug? Or not? Accessing server with numeric IP produces error page... with VirtualHost setup
Date Tue, 10 May 2005 17:45:22 GMT
Well i actually found a different bug with the same topic... but this 
one answers question 1+2 for me, thanks!

Now to question 3:

Lets pretend I want this to work on my server... is there anything I can 
do to forward any request to a standard vhost, even if its an malformed one?

Thanks!
