apache module: send custom error text: how?

Post by Rahul Dhe » Tue, 11 Aug 1998 04:00:00

I am looking for hints on how to achieve the following from
within an Apache module:

When the module's "check access" function decides that access should not
be permitted, it should send back a HTTP_SERVICE_UNAVAILABLE error code
to the client, and also print customized text for the message.  This
should be done without sending back a redirect, so that the client's
browser shows the original URL, not a new redirected URL.

Sending HTTP_SERVICE_UNAVAILABLE is easy, but how do we send back
customized text?  I know that you can specify an ErrorDocument in the
server config or a .htaccess file, but is there any way of doing this
from within a module?

Also, where could I have obtained the above information, other than by
examining the Apache source code?

Ciao Konstantinos, can you be more exact?

Have you disabled shtml management from JRun (under httpd.conf you set
a file for jrun rules: you gotta modify this file by commenting with a
'#' the line containing the ssi_filter specify)

Hope this help
