>Description:
Users converting from NCSA to Apache and using the <LIMIT> directive
in .htaccess files may see "Server Error" instead of serving any file in
an affected directory.

	NCSA allows this:	<LIMIT GET, POST>
	Apache requires:	<LIMIT GET POST>

If the comma exists in an access file, ALL files in the directory
become inaccessible, including both CGI and normal HTML files.
>How-To-Repeat:
Add comma to existing .htaccess to produce error, remove to fix.
>Fix:
Solution:  When switching to Apache, check all .htaccess files for
presence of a comma within the <LIMIT> directive and remove
>Audit-Trail:
>Unformatted:
