Subject [users@httpd] Problem in disabling HTTP OPTIONS method
Date Fri, 07 May 2010 11:11:47 GMT
Dear users,

We tried to disable HTTP options method in our apache server(version httpd-2.0.63). We have
added the following lines in httpd.conf :

<Location />
     <LimitExcept GET POST HEAD CONNECT>
        order deny,allow
        deny from all

But when we test for OPTIONS method, it is still available as shown below :

cmd:\>telnet 80
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Fri, 07 May 2010 10:49:43 GMT
Server: Apache
Content-Length: 0
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/plain

Connection closed by foreign host.


Please let us know how to disable OPTIONS method in httpd. we do not prefer to use mod_rewrite.

Or else is it possible to configure such that the Allow line is not shown when queried:


Waiting for response....

Thanks and regards
