Bug#421901: apache2 ignores +includes directive if it is first on options line
On an apache2 directory configuration the following does not work any more:-
Options +Includes Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
allow from all
This use to work on sarge and stopped after i switched to sid.
results are in /var/log/apache2/error.log :-
[Wed May 02 11:54:58 2007] [warn] [client 192.168.0.154] mod_include: Options +Includes (or IncludesNoExec) wasn't set, INCLUD
ES filter removed
And SSI directives were not processed.
A simple workaround seems to be to do the following :-
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews +Includes
if +Includes is the first line item on the options line it was not processed but moving it seems to fix the problem.
Couldn't see this bug in the apache2 bugs list so though i better send it in.
