OK, have a look at the example I have provided in the bugreport and then
try to explain why when I access


I get


instead of


Again, interpreted in plain language the configuration file says:

There is a virtual host at It's name is sourcepole.ch. All
other names that end in sourcepole.ch are also handled by this virtual
server. When a directory access happens, the index files that the server
should try to deliver are: index.d.xml first then if not found index.xml
then index.html.

Mind you, that the config docu states that DirectoryIndex can be used
*inside* a VirtualHost definition in the same way that it says that
about ServerAlias. But this is *not* the case. If I access 
*whatever*.sourcepole.ch then index.d.xml will *not* be served, as it

The other config is a *workaround*, which doesn't change the fact that the
not-functioning of the first config is IMHO a *bug*.

Thanks for your patience,
