RedHat intel 5.2 vanilla install.
Apache compiled by myself.
In httpd.conf I have:
DirectoryIndex index.html index.shtml index.phtml index.asp

<Files ~ "\.(asp|php3|phtml)$">
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all

Then I try to turn on Options Indexes in a directory:
 <Directory /home/blahus/blahusweb/html/stats>
  Options Indexes
  IndexOrderDefault Descending Name

When accessing this directory, I get this error:
[Sun Aug 29 14:03:35 1999] [error] [client] client denied by server configuration:
[Sun Aug 29 14:03:35 1999] [error] [client] client denied by server configuration:

I believe apache checks all of the files listed in DirectoryIndex, and when
noticing that index.phtml is not allowed (by <Files>) it denies access,
even though no index.(asp|phtml) is present on disk.

A workaround is to place
"DirectoryIndex foo" inside the <Directory> supposed to allow indexes.
Insert the config directives I described and access the directory.
<Files> should not deny files listed in DirectoryIndex, when they are not
physically present
