Subject [users@httpd] how many <Location> directives can you have?
Date Thu, 02 Jun 2011 01:53:51 GMT
I think I am confused about the <Location> directive. How many can you have? Can you
list 4 or 5, for example, and they are all acted upon? Or does Apached just start with the
first and stop there. Sorry for such a basic question but I ran into an issue.

I used such a directive to lock down a particular directory. All was good. Then I decided
that I only wanted part of the directory (web app) to be locked down. So I added several such
Location directives. While it appeared to work . . . well without going into too much detail
the application didn't require authentication. So I thought it was my application until I
changed the directives back to one for the entire directory/application and it started working
again as it should.

So I know it has to do with the location directives. Any suggestions?
