Subject [users@httpd] mod_speling no longer works on nested directories
Date Fri, 27 Jun 2008 22:34:47 GMT
I have correct partial urls like:


and requests for misspelt urls (wrong case only) like:


With debian sarge's apache 2.0.54 with mod_speling enabled,
the request was corrected and the page was returned.

With debian etch's apache 2.2.3 with mod_speling enabled,
the incorrect url is not corrected and a 404 is returned.

Also, the misspelt url "/abc/def" is converted to
"/abc/DEF" but "/abc/def/" provokes a 404.

Is there a way to get the useful behaviour in 2.2.3?

I need to use debian stable but a quick google indicates
that the more recent apache 2.2.8 has the problem too:
