Subject RE: config/9711: httpd.conf-dist has lost the #AddType applicatio n/x-httpd-php .php line

Thank you for your reply.

Whilst I agree it's dangerous to have 'default' configurations that people
can uncomment without carefully considering what they are doing, the other
has serious downsides as well.

A logical end point of the argument "we shouldn't provide suggested
even commented out" is not to provide a sample httpd.conf file at all, and
tell people
to read the manual. This is hardly going to endear Apache to most users I
Much as I dislike much M$ S/W, one thing they do have right is that
you can install the S/W and get useful work done very easily immediatly.

I think you should re-consider removing 'helpful hint' commented out lines,
it's not user friendly to be forced to double check the manual every time
you build Apache and want to turn PHP back on.

Good luck with Apache, great S/W :)
