Subject Re: [users@httpd] quite tricky, I need some serious help here.

It was thus said that the Great Vagelis Papadogiannakis once stated:

  Well, I did say for next time.

  Same on my server, and while the information is a bit spread out, it's all

	[ snip ]

          <Directory /http/spc/sites/>
            AuthUserFile /http/spc/sites/
            AuthGroupFile /http/spc/sites/

	[ snip --- different module ]

          <Directory /http/spc/sites/>
            Options Indexes
            AuthType Basic
            AuthName "XXXX Invoices"
            Require group xxxx

(lots snipped actually).  It even displays the configuration of my custom
Apache module:

   Module Name: mod_litbook.c

   Content handlers: litbook-handler

   Configuration Phase Participation: Create Directory Config

   Request Phase Participation: none

   Module Directives:
          LitbookDir - Specifies base location of book contents
          LitbookTranslation - Specifies the location of book/chapter titles and abbreviations
          LitbookIndex - The URL for the main indexpage for this book
          LitbookTLD - Same value as the Location directive (see docs)
          LitbookTitle - Set the title of pages output by this module

   Current Configuration:

          <Location /kj/>
            LitbookDir /http/spc/sites/
            LitbookTranslation /http/spc/sites/
            LitbookTLD /kj/
            LitbookTitle "The Electric King James"

  Granted, it helps to know how the original configuration file was
constructed, but I think it would be better (or easier for some people) than
searching through a core file 8-)

  -spc (It also gives a good indication of which modules handle what ... )
