Hello all,

I am trying to protect all my coldfusion administrator directories that looks like this: "CFIDE/administrator" in their path.
I thought that using DirectoryMatch with regex.  What would the Regular Expression look like?

<DirectoryMatch CFIDE/administrator>
  #Other directive here...
</DirectoryMatch>

How would I so this.

Thanks,
Troy

<DirectoryMatch "^/CFIDE/administrator/.*">
[stuff]
</DirectoryMatch>

Would probably work.

Addendum: You could probably just as easily accomplish this with a directory tag, of the format:

<Directory /absolute/path/to/CFIDE/administrator>
[stuff]

</Directory>
