Subject [users@httpd] Consequences of disabling mod_authz_host?
Date Sun, 01 Jun 2008 01:37:24 GMT
>From what I understand, mod_authz_host always performs two DNS lookups
per request when mod_authz_host is enabled, regardless of whether any
host-based blockings are used. I don't need that, in fact, the only
part of mod_authz_host I use is to set "Order allow,deny" and "Allow
from all" or "Deny from all".

If I disable mod_authz_host, what are the risks? Currently the only
blocks I have are from:

<Directory />
  Order allow,deny
  Deny from all


<FilesMatch "^\.svn">
  Order allow,deny
  Deny from all

I can block the latter with mod_rewrite. Is the first even necessary?
It was in my distro's default httpd.conf.
