Alias directive in Apache 1.3.22
Hopefully this is a simple question. I have a directory that is called docs, which is not in my regular DoumentRoot of my website. I have created and Alias that points to like so:
Alias /docs/ /usr/local/docs/
This works fine as long as I type: www.mydomain.com/docs/ but if I of course only type: www.mydomain.com/docs it does not work. I read the information that protein to the mod_alias directive, which states that if you Alias has a trailing / it is required for the end-user to type in exactly that way. I thought to myself that this is understandable, but I need to be able to except it URL without the trailing / as well. I then went back in the conf file that defines the Alias and added another Alias right under that one without the trailing /. In my thinking this should work, but for some reason it does not. I then just modified the original Alias to not include the trailing /, but that does not seem to work either.
Im not sure if I am explaining this right or not, but to make a long story short, I would like for below statements to get to the same place:
The only difference is the trailing /. There has got to be something simple, because I have put entirely to much time in trying to figure this out. Please Help!!!!!!
