Re: Bug#239829: apache: ReadmeName and HeaderName ignored, nothing displayed

Hi Robert,
	mod_autoindex was not very well documentented at that time. Here
is a snapshot of you might need:

    # ReadmeName: the name of the README file the server will look for by
    # default, and append to directory listings.
    # HeaderName: the name of a file which should be prepended to
    # directory indexes.
    # The module recognize only 2 kind of mime-types, text/html and
    # text/*, but the only method it has to identify them is via
    # the filename extension. The default is to include and display
    # html files.
    ReadmeName README.html
    HeaderName HEADER.html

    # Otherwise you can comment the 2 lines above and uncomment
    # the 2 below in order to display plain text files.
    # ReadmeName README.txt
    # HeaderName HEADER.txt

Please let me know if it helps.


PS I don't have a woody system handy to test sorry.. if someone can give
it a shot I would be very very glad

<user> fajita: step one
<fajita> Whatever the problem, step one is always to look in the error log.
<user> fajita: step two
<fajita> When in danger or in doubt, step two is to scream and shout.
