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.

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.
