Subject Re: [users@httpd] <directory> and deny directives

Danie:

I presume that you meant to imply that my DENY list should then follow ALLOW
FROM ALL?  Given that my directives aren't denying anything they shouldn't, but
only failing to deny a few things they should, I guess I'm not understanding why
I would need to change the ordering in the way you suggested.  Could you explain
it further?

Mark
