Weird Apache Problem

Hi All,

  I have a really annoying apache problem. I'm trying to define HEADER and README file via the ReadmeName and HeaderName directives. As far as apache is considered the configuration is ok, as running 'apachectl configcheck' reports no errors.
  However, when I come into the directory, the files do not appear in the page. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, I mean that I gave directory view permission on a directory, then on top there should be the HEADER text, and on the bottom should be the README text.

Any comments will be available.

Header and Readme files should be relative to the directory you are indexing. Say you are indexing the directory /internet, your file should be located on /internet/HEADER.html or /internet/HEADER

and make sure mod_dir module exist on your server

What version of Apache are you using and can I please see the section of your conf file that defines the directory?

oops, the module mod_dir is in the mod_dir.c file, and is compiled in by default.

Hi There,

  Well, your answer wasn't complete, but it had given me a pointer where to look. Aparently, if you leave the directive as ReadmaName README, the apache will disregard the README file. So, I changed it to README.txt, and now it works. :-)
