I've got Apache set up and running. Everything is fine. However, I want Apache to timeout, rather than returning error 403 (or any other error) if the request is for the root path or any other invalid path.
So ... if this is requested:
then I want Apache to ignore the request (timeout), rather than sending an error message that would confirm apache is running at that location. (there is nothing at the root path).
However, if any other valid path is requested, such as:
then I want apache to respond normally.
I have tried changing ErrorDocument in httpd.conf to some path that does not exist, but Apache still responds with an error message.
Why do I want to do this? I want the server to be invisible unless you know a valid path.
Can this be done?
