Altering DirectoryIndex in <Directory> or <Location>

Altering DirectoryIndex in <Directory> or <Location>

Post by Kamil Kuku » Tue, 17 Dec 2002 22:00:06

It seems that setting DirectoryIndex for some <Directory> or
<Location> along with global setting actually means merging the
values. That is:

Directory index.html index.php

<Directory /foo/bar>
   DirectoryIndex foobar.html

results to have for "/foo/bar" index file foobar.html as well as
index.html and index.php. Is there way to supress global setting for
some directory or location?

1. Apache->DirectoryIndex in <Location> and <Directory> directives.

  Thanks in advance for any replys.
  I have a cgi-bin dir, /cgi-bin/, I want to make it having index.cgi
as its DirectoryIndex. So I did:
<Directory /absolute/path/cgi-bin>
AllowOverrides Indexes
Options None
<Location /cgi-bin/>
DirectoryIndex index.cgi
But when I started the apache server, and accessing
It tells me I don't have permission to do this. I checked the error_log,
it shows
me "try to invoke directory as script".
I wonder can I have DirectoryIndex for cgi-bin directory? Currently what
I did is
using Rewrite modules to solve it.
But I like to know can it be done by DirectoryIndex directive?
