Subject [users@httpd] Location, LocationMatch combinations
Date Sun, 12 Apr 2009 15:27:58 GMT

Apache 2.2.x, configuration.
I have read this :
but some aspect is still not very clear to me.

If I have :

<Location "/zone1/private">
   .. some directives A ..

<Location "/zone2/private">
   .. some directives B ..

<LocationMatch "/private$">
   .. some directives C ..

(The above URIs do not reside on the filesystem.)

If I access "",
are the above directives A and C combined ?

Similarly if I access "",
are the above directives B and C combined ?

If not, is there a way to combine them, more or less in the way 
indicated above ?

I guess that the basic question is : does Apache finally select one and 
only one Location/LocationMatch which applies, and then apply only the 
directives within that section, or does it accumulate/merge all that 
applies ?
 From the doc, I believe the latter, but it would be nice to have a 
definite confirmation by an expert.

Thanks for enlightenment.
