Subject Re: [users@httpd] DirectoryIndex setting Challenge
Date Thu, 02 Sep 2004 19:14:31 GMT

Okay, in that case I am guessing that mod_mono is 'taking over' that 
directory and deciding what the index is itself.

In that case you have two options:

1. Set up your directories so that index.htm is not in the mono 
application, something like this:
/var/www/html/app/ the mono application.

2. Consult the mod_mono docs and see if you can get it to serve the 
index.htm as the default page for you.  Downside here is that apache is 
probably a lot better than mod_mono at serving static html pages.

Often times mod_perl app developers will have a front end apache that 
handles all the static content (images/css/html files), and a backend 
apache that handles the actual perl code.  You might want to mimic this 
setup with mod_mono.  Have all your static content in a non-mod_mono 
directory.  You could probably do some kind of <Files > set up that sets 
the handler to mod_mono for any .aspx page.

in the application. My settings are :
