Subject: Re: [users@httpd] Directory index forbidden by
Options directive

2006/10/30, Boyle Owen <Owen.Boyle@swx.com>:
I don't know what you're doing wrong... I tried you're config as you
described it and it works fine. There must be an additional config
snippet somewhere that is screwing things up for you. Do
you have any
"Includes"?

To debug further, strip it down to just this VH and check
that you get
the expected behaviour. Then put back all additional complications
(other VHs, rewrite rules, SSL, whatever...) one piece at a
time, until
it breaks again - maybe that will shed some light on it...
Thanks for the tip. I found the culprit. Fedora Core 5 (i think the
previous versions also) has a welcome.conf in conf.d:

<LocationMatch "^/+$">
Options -Indexes
ErrorDocument 403 /error/noindex.html
</LocationMatch>
Ah-haaaa....
Since I like the welcome page I came with this workaround:

<VirtualHost 10.1.1.103:80>
ServerName yumrepo.s0
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/yum"
<Location />
Options Indexes
</Location>
<Directory "/var/www/html/yum">
AllowOverride None
Options Indexes
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

I think it is kind of ugly. If you can see something more
elegant just say it.
It's a bit redundant - anything that can go in a <Directory> can also go
in a <Location>, so you could simplify things, eg:

<VirtualHost 10.1.1.103:80>
ServerName yumrepo.s0
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/yum"
<Location />
AllowOverride None
Options Indexes
Order Allow,Deny
Allow from all>
</Location>
</VirtualHost>

Having said that, I'm not entirely sure why <Location /> overrides the
welcome.conf snippet while <Directory "/var/www/html/yum"> in the same
place doesn't... Maybe to do with the order apache parses Location and
Directory containers...

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
