Subject Re: [users@httpd] Filename Access

I think I have isolated the problem now.

# remove the CONNECT bug #
#<Location />
#  <Limit CONNECT>
#  Order deny,allow
#  Deny from all
#  </Limit>

When I un-comment the above, the error appears. If I 
comment out the above, the error goes away. 

If anyone else on the list is using this patch, maybe they 
need to check out their configuration too. It's nice to be 
able to configure apache directories now, and know what 
behaviour to expect.

Many thanks to Joe Knall for all his suggestions and help, 
from suse-security list and by sending me a copy of his 
httpd.conf file in the early hours!

Happy new year to everyone.
