  • That is the question.

    If I understand correctly...

    You have a script alias of /music/

    That means the URL must be /music/

    If your script alias is /music

    Then the URL can be /music

    (I'm not totally positive... but, I think you have to list both to cover both cases)
    • You're spot on with this - The problem does reside with the directory alias. The better definition of the directory alias would be:
      ScriptAlias /music /correct/path/to/dir

      Note the lack of trailing slashes in both the alias definition and the directory path - This will provide the correct functionality irrelevant of whether the web URL is invoked with the full path to or merely to the parent directory.

    • Sorry, I got mixed up there a bit.

      Here is what my manual says about DirectoryIndex:


      The DirectoryIndex directive sets the list of resources to look for, when the client requests an index of the directory by specifying a / at the end of the a directory name.
  • I'm having the same problem on Windows 2000 with Apache 2. I suspect it's my recent install of ActiveState 5.8 that altered the Windows Registry so ScriptInterpreterSource Directive is no longer working -- but I would very much appreciate any clues!
    • I don't have a clue about Windows. Sorry.

      If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.

      • How did you fix it on your OS? It might be the windows registry thing is a false trail.
        • Heh. Good point. I had a duplicate virtual host entry in my httpd.conf (i.e., one for the "world" interface and a second for the intranet interface). I put a firewall in, thus making the "world" interface section inapplicable. However, the changes I was making were to the "world" section of httpd.conf and not the intranet section (which, because of the firewall, was the only section Apache was now using). Once I removed the "world" section from httpd.conf, everything started working.

          If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.
