Question case-sensitive issue


We are moving a set of websites from Windows system to Linux. Then we notice that the urls become case-sensitive. For example, we have a page called "HomePage.html" and several other pages have links to this page but using the lower case, e.g. "homepage.html". This has been working when the websites were on Windows IIS. Now it stop working on Linux. We have to use exact same case in the url.

Is there anyway to configure the Linux box web service to be case-insensitive?

Thanks.

If you are using apache, you can change the behavior, read the
docs (I actually don't know where to set it, I just know it can be
done). If you're not using apache, then I don't know.

Edit
Well, I thought I knew it could be done, but I may be wrong after all.

Edit 2
It can be done by a spell checker of sorts, but it's somewhat limited.
Go to Apache's HTTP server website, and look around.
http://httpd.apache.org/
