Subject [users@httpd] Getting CheckSpelling to work (repost)
Date Wed, 03 Jan 2007 06:52:07 GMT
I posted the following over the holiday weekend, so it may have gotten "lost"
in the holiday shuffle:

Good evening and Happy New Year.  Yep, I am home on a New Year's Eve.
I'm watching the C-Band feed of the raw Times Square event from New York.

In any event I am bringing up a new Linux server, replacing the older server
that is running Apache 1.3.  The new server is running Fedora Core 6,
updated, so it is running the latest Apache server.  I managed to get my
CGI and SSI stuff working again, but the CheckSpelling is not working,
as it currently is on the old server.

I looked for "checkspelling" in the FAQ, but got nothing.  Trying to find
something in the previous postings would appear to be a daunting task with
a search capability.

Here are the sections in the config file that contain the directive:

<Directory "/WebDisk/http/htdocs/vidiot">
    Options Includes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    CheckSpelling on
<VirtualHost *>
    ServerAlias *
    CheckSpelling on

The Directory section is where it is working in 1.3, but when it didn't
work there, I added it to VirtualHost, as listed in the on line docs.

But it doesn't work there either.

My test is to go to one of my web pages that is upper/lower and then
change one of the uppercase characters to lowercase and look for the page.
I get a page not found.  I also did the same thing on the 1.3 server and
it did as I expected, i.e., it found the page and showed the URL with the
correct case.

Thanks in advance for any pointers in figuring out this problem.
