Subject Re: [users@httpd] What is the difference between <Directory ~> and <DirectoryMatch>?
Date Sun, 27 Jul 2008 08:45:02 GMT
Hi,

   The basic difference is  while using <Directory>  the path should be
absolute and should be there on the filesystem. But <DirectoryMatch> there
is no need for any absolute path.... Also if your Document root is /opt/html
and assume there are two other folders like /opt/html/test/test1 and
/opt/html/support/test now on the doucument root on .htaccess if you have
used <DirectoryMatch test> and denied for everyone, access for both
/opt/html/test & /opt/html/support/test will be blocked which is not with
the case of <Directory>

Regards.
