Subject Re: [users@httpd] Trouble-shooting Apache 2.2 Alias
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2018 09:34:39 GMT
Hey Gillis, I set the log level to debug and all it said was that the 
server configuration prevented the operation. One line.

What we have done so far is set the "Directory /" to "Order deny,allow" 
and then "Deny from all", and then set "Order allow,deny" and "Allow 
from all" on the Alias. So the Alias should be more open than the base.

When we put the index.html page at the DocumentRoot (/var/www/html) it 
is viewable.

The other test I did was to use a non-security "fixed" httpd.conf file, 
add the "Alias" and "Directory" stanza at the end, and test. The 
index.html could be seen then.

Since I did the editing of the httpd.conf file, I own fixing the issue. 
Appreciate any guidance you can give.
