Subject RE: [users@httpd] Escaping space in SetEnv [wd-vc]
Date Fri, 11 Apr 2014 06:37:03 GMT
That is correct and I would myself prefer dir named without spaces. But this is a requirement
which I need to fulfill. So I do not have a way out.
If there is any tried solution or suggestion, please let me know!

In my experience, having blanks in a UNIX path is such a PITA that I do everything to avoid
it. Everytime you need to hand it over you have to worry how many escapes (\) you have to
do so that it arrives correctly at the end of the information chain.
It is MUCH less hassle to simply use underlines.

Therefore it is my advice to repair the "broken" directory name to my_dir and live happily
ever after.

Betreff: [users@httpd] Escaping space in SetEnv [wd-vc]
Hi All,

I am trying to set an environment variable using SetEnv directive. I need to set a value containing
space characters. Any help on how to escape spaces in the variable value?
For example:

SetEnv dir_root "/dir1/m1/s1/my dir"

I tried enclosing the value in quotations, escaping space using backslash, \040 and \s. Nothing
seems to be working.
