Subject [users@httpd] Securing Apache configuration
Date Thu, 11 Aug 2005 21:02:31 GMT
Hi guys,

I have two questions:

1. Is there any way I can specify in the config. file
for Apache that do not allow access to any directory
called 'foo' in my complete root...i.e. for e.g. if I

 <Directory c:\MyRoot\*\foo>
  Order Deny,Allow
  Deny from All

This will disable access to 'c:\MyRoot\Dir1\foo' but
if I had 'c:\MyRoot\Dir1\Dir2\foo' the web request
would go through...

Is there a way to disable access to 'foo' no matter
where it occurs in the directory tree below my Root

2. Is there a way for me to configure apache so as to
disable showing/following hard links...
