Re: cgi-bin, .html, .pl etc in URIs

I totally agree URLs need to be sorted out.

I propose the way Debian could achieve this is by leveraging the popular
Virtual Hosting feature of Apache and a /web directory off root.

The FHS:
Suggests /srv but I don't think it will work.

So when a new webapp "example" is installed. It's specific URL is made
up by populating:


With something as simple as a symlink:
debian$ ll /web
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root   32 2005-06-09 10:11 classpath.soltecsoftware.com.au -> /home/hendry/projects/classpath/
