Subject Re: [users@httpd] confused with directory permissions
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2002 03:00:54 GMT
mandrake uses httpd.conf,
which includes commonhttpd.conf
httpd-perl.conf ( if installed)
php.conf (if installed)

but access.conf is not a default file with my installation.
as a matter of fact I don't have an access.conf for apache and my apache 
running just fine.
( be default it not allowing indexes ~g~ )

though I haven't made a lot of customisation to the conf.
