Description kelly felkins 2003-02-24 19:50:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
When using the apache gui config tool, if you enable .htaccess overrides  for a
directory, an invalid file is created. Here is the bad section:

	<Directory "/var/www/html/">
	 	AllowOverride from all

"from" is not a valid option on the allowoverride.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. [red hat] > Server Settings > http server
2. "virtual hosts" tab
3. edit default virtual host
4. add a directory. I added the default, which was "/var/www/html/"
5. check the "Let .htaccess files override directory options"
6. say ok to all the boxes
7. restart the server


Actual Results:  [root@ss40 /]# /usr/sbin/apachectl -k restart
Syntax error on line 996 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
Illegal override option from
[root@ss40 /]#

Expected Results:  no error on restart
