When I go to http://www.mysite.com/manual it gives me teh Apache 2.0 server manual, rather than following my .htaccess rule to send the user to the site manual.

How can I turn off this Apache manual?

Do you have access to the server's configuration file ?

This is usually called httpd.conf or apache.conf, and on Linux machines is often located in /etc/httpd/ or /etc/apache ...

Then you should be able to turn off the Apache manual by removing or commenting out the following in your httpd.conf:

Alias /manual/ "/usr/lib/apache/htdocs/manual/"

<Directory "/usr/lib/apache/htdocs/manual">
    Options Indexes FollowSymlinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>

Or you can change the paths inside <Directory> ...

Hope this helps...

Hmmm... That sounds right, but I don't see an Alias for manual.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Maybe check in the other config files... Maybe vhosts.conf or any other included files ?

hi spyder,

i hope you still need assistance on this subject.

depending on your Linux flavor, some may have a special directory for the config.  On Fedore core4, look in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ and there should be a file named manual.conf

I recalled SuSe have this similar behavior.
