Subject Re: [users@httpd] Problems with mod_auth configuration using apache 2.0.55 ...
Date Tue, 11 Apr 2006 03:06:05 GMT
Hello Matthew,

I'm guessing that the confusion is the difference between <Directory> 
and <Location> blocks. Directory blocks reference the filesystem, 
location blocks are relative to the docroot and can be virtual.
