Subject [users@httpd] Re: Apache 2.4 Mod Speling
Date Tue, 28 Feb 2017 08:43:43 GMT
Hi - I did some further digging around on Mod Speling and came across this forum -

It suggests that if Mod Rewrite is enabled alongside Mod Speling that there will be a conflict,
resulting in Mod Speling not working.

Can anyone confirm if this is the case?

Hello - I am trying to implement mod_speling on Apache 2.4 running on RH v6.8. The idea so
ignore case of the URL on the destination file system, by way of file names or directories.

There are multiple sites configured in the vhosts directory, each with it's own virtual hosts
file. The spelling module has been enabled in the server config file /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf.

Inside one of the virtual host files the following has been added -

    <IfModule mod_speling.c>
             CheckSpelling on
CheckCaseOnly on

The server has been restared but the URL's are still case sensitive. Yes I know that all incoming
URL's can be rewrote to lowercase but the problem is not all URL's in the configs are in lower
case - hence the need for this module.

Any pointers would be much appreciated.
