Changes with Apache 2.0.51
*) mod_include no longer checks for recursion, because that's done
in the core. This allows for careful usage of recursive SSI.
[André Malo]
*) Fix memory leak in the cache handling of mod_rewrite. PR 27862.
[chunyan sheng <shengperson>, André Malo]
*) Include directives no longer refuse to process symlinks on
directories. Instead there's now a maximum nesting level
of included directories (128 as distributed). This is configurable
at compile time using the -DAP_MAX_INCLUDE_DIR_DEPTH switch.
PR 28492. [André Malo]
*) Win32: apache -k start|restart|install|config can leave stranded
piped logger processes (eg, rotatelogs.exe) due to improper
server shutdown on these code paths.
[Bill Stoddard]
*) SECURITY: CAN-2004-0751 (
mod_ssl: Fix a segfault in the SSL input filter which could be
triggered if using "speculative" mode, for instance by a
proxy request to an SSL server. PR 30134. [Joe Orton]

[Brian Akins <bakins>, Justin Erenkrantz]
*) mod_disk_cache: Optimize network performance of disk cache subsystem by
allowing zero-copy (sendfile) writes and other miscellaneous fixes.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) mod_cache, mod_disk_cache, mod_mem_cache: Refactor cache modules, and
switch to the provider API instead of hooks. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) mod_autoindex: Don't truncate the directory listing if a stat()
call fails (for instance on a >2Gb file). PR 17357.
[Joe Orton]
*) Makefile fix: httpd is linked against LIBS given to the
'make' invocation. PR 7882. [Joe Orton]
*) WinNT MPM: Fix a broken log message at termination. PR 28063.
[Eider Oliveira <eider>]
*) Prevent Win32 pool corruption at startup [Allan Edwards]

suexec userdir access in a virtual host which has suexec configured.
PR 18156. [Joshua Slive]
*) mod_rewrite no longer confuses the RewriteMap caches if
different maps defined in different virtual hosts use the
same map name. PR 26462. [André Malo]
*) mod_setenvif: Remove "support" for Remote_User variable which
never worked at all. PR 25725. [André Malo]
*) Backport from 2.1 / Regression from 1.3: mod_headers now knows
again the functionality of the ErrorHeader directive. But instead
using this misnomer additional flags to the Header directive were
introduced ("always" and "onsuccess", defaulting to the latter).
PR 28657. [André Malo]
*) Use the higher performing 'httpready' Accept Filter on all platforms
except FreeBSD < 4.1.1. [Paul Querna]
*) mod_usertrack: Escape the cookie name before pasting into the
regexp. [André Malo]
*) Extend the SetEnvIf directive to capture subexpressions of the
matched value. [André Malo]
*) Recursive Include directives no longer crash. The server stops
including configuration files after a certain nesting level (128
as distributed). This is configurable at compile time using the
-DAP_MAX_INCLUDE_DEPTH switch. PR 28370. [André Malo]
*) mod_dir: the trailing-slash behaviour is now configurable using the
DirectorySlash directive. [André Malo]
*) Allow proxying of resources that are invoked via DirectoryIndex.
PR 14648, 15112, 29961. [André Malo]
*) util_ldap: Switched the lock types on the shared memory cache

provide cross process cache protection. [Brad Nicholes]
*) util_ldap: Reworked the cache locking scheme to eliminate duplicate
cache entries in the credentials cache due to race conditions.
[Brad Nicholes]
*) util_ldap: Enhanced the util_ldap cache-info display to show more
detail about the contents and current state of the cache.
[Brad Nicholes]

canned server response for the scope of the directive.
[Geoffrey Young, André Malo]
*) work around MSIE Digest auth bug - if AuthDigestEnableQueryStringHack
is set in r->subprocess_env allow mismatched query strings to pass.
PR 27758. [Paul Querna, Geoffrey Young]
*) Accept URLs for the ServerAdmin directive. If the supplied
argument is not recognized as an URL, assume it's a mail address.
PR 28174. [André Malo, Paul Querna]
*) initialize server arrays prior to calling ap_setup_prelinked_modules
so that static modules can push Defines values when registering
hooks just like DSO modules can ["Philippe M. Chiasson" <gozer>]

an attempt to do this would try and connect to, regardless
of the server specified. PR 24922
[Pascal Terjan <>]

platforms; preventing deadlock when stderr output fills pipe buffer.
Also fixes case where stderr from nph- scripts could be lost.
PR 22030, 18348. [Joe Orton, Jeff Trawick]
*) mod_alias now emits a warning if it detects overlapping *Alias*
directives. [André Malo]

exported on Win32 and Netware as well (minor MMN bump). PR 28523.
[Edward Rudd <eddie>, André Malo]
*) Restore the ability to disable the use of AcceptEx on Win9x systems
automatically (broken in 2.0.49). PR 28529. [André Malo]
*) <VirtualHost myhost> now applies to all IP addresses for myhost
instead of just the first one reported by the resolver. This
corrects a regression since 1.3. [Jeff Trawick]
*) util_ldap: allow relative paths for LDAPTrustedCA to be resolved
against ServerRoot PR#26602 [Brad Nicholes]
*) SECURITY: CAN-2004-0488 (

httpd is compiled with the shipped APR version (0.9.5).
PR 28287. [André Malo]
*) Unix MPMs: Stop dropping connections when the file descriptor
is at least FD_SETSIZE. [Jeff Trawick]

NULL. Fix a segfault caused by a lack of bounds checking on the
cache. PR 24801. [Graham Leggett]
*) Throw an error message if an attempt is made to use the LDAPTrustedCA
or LDAPTrustedCAType directives in a VirtualHost. PR 26390
[Brad Nicholes]
*) Fix a potential segfault if the bind password in the LDAP cache
is NULL. PR 28250. [Jari Ahonen <jah>]
*) Quotes cannot be used around require group and require dn
directives, update the documentation to reflect this. Also add
quotes around the dn and group within debug messages, to make it
more obvious why authentication is failing if quotes are used in
error. PR 19304. [Graham Leggett]
*) The Microsoft LDAP SDK escapes filters for us, stop util_ldap
from escaping filters twice when the backslash character is used.
PR 24437. [Jess Holle <jessh>]
*) Overhaul handling of LDAP error conditions, so that the util_ldap_*
functions leave the connections in a sane state after errors have
occurred. PR 27748, 17274, 17599, 18661, 21787, 24595, 24683, 27134,
27271 [Graham Leggett]
*) mod_ldap calls ldap_simple_bind_s() to validate the user
credentials. If the bind fails, the connection is left
in an unbound state. Make sure that the ldap connection
record is updated to show that the connection is no longer
bound. [Brad Nicholes]
*) Ensure that lines in the request which are too long are
properly terminated before logging.
[Tsurutani Naoki <turutani>]
*) Update the bind credentials for the cached LDAP connection to
reflect the last bind. This prevents util_ldap from creating
unnecessary connections rather than reusing cached connections.
[Brad Nicholes]
*) mod_isapi: GetServerVariable returned improperly terminated header
fields given "ALL_HTTP" or "ALL_RAW". PR 20656.
[Jesse Pelton <jsp>]

*) Fix memory corruption problem with ap_custom_response() function.
The core per-dir config would later point to request pool data
that would be reused for different purposes on different requests.
[Jeff Trawick, based on an old 1.3 patch submitted by Will Lowe]
*) Win32: Tweak worker thread accounting routines to eliminate
server hang when number of Listen directives in httpd.conf
is greater than or equal to the setting of ThreadsPerChild.

Fix starvation issue on listening sockets where a short-lived
connection on a rarely-accessed listening socket will cause a
child to hold the accept mutex and block out new connections until
another connection arrives on that rarely-accessed listening socket.
With Apache 2.x there is no performance concern about enabling the
logic for platforms which don't need it, so it is enabled everywhere
except for Win32. [Jeff Trawick]

[Bill Stoddard, Massimo Torquati, Jean-Jacques Clar]
*) core.c: If large file support is enabled, allow any file that is
greater than AP_MAX_SENDFILE to be split into multiple buckets.
This allows Apache to send files that are greater than 2gig.
Otherwise we run into 32/64 bit type mismatches in the file size.
[Brad Nicholes]
*) proxy_http fix: mod_proxy hangs when both KeepAlive and
ProxyErrorOverride are enabled, and a non-200 response without a
body is generated by the backend server. (e.g.: a client makes a
request containing the "If-Modified-Since" and "If-None-Match"
headers, to which the backend server respond with status 304.)

NT/2000/CP directive is useful to work around bugs in some
third party layered service providers like virus scanners,
VPN and firewall products, that do not properly handle
WinSock 2 APIs. Use this directive if your server is issuing
AcceptEx failed messages.

a newline now cause a lookup failure. PR 14453.
[Cedric Gavage <cedric.gavage>, André Malo]
*) Backport major overhaul of mod_include's filter parser from 2.1.
The new parser code is expected to be more robust and should
catch all of the edge cases that were not handled by the previous one.
The 2.1 external API changes were hidden by a wrapper which is
expected to keep the API backwards compatible. [André Malo]
*) Add a hook (insert_error_filter) to allow filters to re-insert
themselves during processing of error responses. Enable mod_expires
to use the new hook to include Expires headers in valid error
responses. This addresses an RFC violation. It fixes PRs 19794,
24884, and 25123. [Paul J. Reder]

*) Replace usage of atol() to parse strings when we might want a
larger-than-long value with apr_atoll(), which returns long long.
This allows HTTPD to deal with larger files correctly.
[Shantonu Sen <ssen>]
*) mod_ext_filter: Ignore any content-type parameters when checking if
the response should be filtered. Previously, "intype=text/html"
wouldn't match something like "text/html;charset=8859_1".
[Jeff Trawick]

*) APR-Util Renames pending have been completed [Thom May]
*) Performance improvements for the code that reads request

*) Add a new directive: MaxMemFree. MaxMemFree makes it possible
to configure the maximum amount of memory the allocators will
hold on to for reuse. Anything over the MaxMemFree threshold
will be free()d. This directive is useful when uncommon large
peaks occur in memory usage. It should _not_ be used to mask
defective modules' memory use. [Sander Striker]
*) Fixed the Content-Length filter so that HTTP/1.0 requests to CGI
scripts would not result in a truncated response.
[Ryan Bloom, Justin Erenkrantz, Cliff Woolley]
*) Add a filter_init parameter to the filter registration functions
so that a filter can execute arbitrary code before the handlers
are invoked. This resolves a problem where mod_include requests
would incorrectly return a 304. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Fix a long-standing bug in 2.0, CGI scripts were being called
with relative paths instead of absolute paths. Apache 1.3 used
absolute paths for everything except for SuExec, this brings back
that standard. [Ryan Bloom]

*) Normalize the hostname value in the request_rec to all-lowercase
[Perry Harrington <pedward>]
*) Fix WinNT cgi 500 errors when QUERY_ARGS or other strings include
extended characters (non US-ASCII) in non-utf8 format. This brings
Win32 back into CGI/1.1 compliance, and leaves charset decoding up
to the cgi application itself. [William Rowe]

[Dave Dyer <ddyer>]
*) Fixed a problem with 'make install' on ReliantUnix.
[Jean-frederic Clere <jfrederic.clere>]
*) Make the default_handler catch all requests that aren't served by
another handler. This also gets us to return a 404 if a directory

loaded. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Fixed the handling of nested if-statements in shtml files.
PR 9866 [Brian Pane]
*) Allow 'make install DESTDIR=/path'. This allows packagers to install
into a directory different from the one that was configured. This
also mirrors the root= feature from 1.3. We cannot use prefix=,

configuration time. This means that there is no variable prefix
to replace. [Andreas Hasenack <andreas>]
These levels of AIX don't have a thundering herd problem with
accept(). [Jeff Trawick]
*) prefork MPM: Ignore mutex errors during graceful restart. For
certain types of mutexes (particularly SysV semaphores), we
should expect to occasionally fail to obtain or release the
mutex during restart processing. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix so that it finds any perl instead of just
early perl 5.x versions. This is consistent with a build/install
from source, and it allows the perl scripts installed by a bindist
to work on systems with perl 5.6. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix apxs so that the makefile created by "apxs -g" works on AIX and
Tru64 (and probably some other platforms). [Jeff Trawick]
*) Allow CGI scripts to return their Content-Length. This also fixes a
hang on HEAD requests seen on certain platforms (such as FreeBSD).

besides server-root/build. PR 8453
[Jeff Trawick and a host of others]
*) Allow ap_discard_request_body to be called multiple times in the
same request. Essentially, ap_http_filter keeps track of whether
it has sent an EOS bucket up the stack, if so, it will only ever
send an EOS bucket for this request.
[Ryan Bloom, Justin Erenkrantz, Greg Stein]
*) Remove all special mod_ssl URIs. This also fixes the bug where

This left the user in an ambiguous state. PR 8320 [Paul J. Reder]
*) Close sockets on worker MPM when doing a graceless restart.
[Aaron Bannert]
*) Reverted a minor optimization in mod_ssl.c that used the vhost ID
as the session id context rather that a MD5 hash of that vhost ID,
because it caused very long vhost id's to be unusable with mod_ssl.
PR 8572. [Cliff Woolley]
*) Fix the link to the description of the CoredumpDirectory

*) Fixed SHMCB session caching. [Aaron Bannert, Cliff Woolley]
*) Synced with remaining changes from mod_ssl 2.8.8-1.3.24:
- Avoid SIGBUS on sparc machines with SHMCB session caches
- Allow whitespace between the pipe and the name of the
program in SSLLog "| /path/to/program". [Cliff Woolley]
*) Introduce mod_ext_filter and mod_deflate experimental modules
to the Win32 build (zlib sources must be in srclib\zlib.)
[William Rowe]
*) Changes to the worker MPM's queue management and thread
synchronization code to reduce mutex contention [Brian Pane]
*) Don't install *.in configuration files since we already install
*-std.conf files. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Many improvements to the threadpool MPM. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Fix subreqs that are promoted via fast_redirect from having invalid
frec->r structures. This would cause subtle errors later on in
request processing such as seen in PR 7966. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) More efficient pool recycling logic for the worker MPM [Brian Pane]
*) Modify the worker MPM to not accept() new connections until
there is an available worker thread. This prevents queued
connections from starving for processing time while long-running
connections were hogging all the available threads. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Convert the worker MPM's fdqueue from a LIFO back into a FIFO.

*) Fix AcceptPathInfo. PR 8234 [Cliff Woolley]
*) SECURITY: Added the APLOG_TOCLIENT flag to ap_log_rerror() to
explicitly tell the server that warning messages should be sent
to the client in addition to being recorded in the error log.
Prior to this change, ap_log_rerror() always sent warning
messages to the client. In one case, a faulty CGI script caused
the server to send a warning message to the client that contained
the full path to the CGI script. This could be considered a
minor security exposure. [Bill Stoddard]
*) mod_autoindex output when SuppressRules was specified would
omit the first carriage return so the first item in the list
would appear to the right of the column headings instead of
underneath them. PR 8016 [David Shane Holden <dpejesh>]
*) Moved the call to apr_mmap_dup outside the error branch so
that it would actually get called. This fixes a core dump
at init everytime you use the MMapFile directive. PR 8314
[Paul J. Reder]
*) Trigger an error when a LoadModule directive attempts to
load a module which is built-in. This is a common error when
switching from a DSO build to a static build. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Change to use libtool --install everywhere and then
clean up some stray files and symlinks that libtool leaves around
on some platforms. This gets subversion building properly since
it needed a re-link to be performed by libtool at install time,
and the old logic to simply cp the DSO didn't handle
that requirement. [Sander Striker]

*) Fix segfault in mod_mem_cache when garabge collecting an expired
cache entry. [Bill Stoddard]
*) Introduced -E startup_logfile_name option to httpd to allow admins
to begin logging errors immediately. This provides Win32 users
an alternative to sending startup errors to the event viewer, and
allows other daemon tool authors an alternative to logging to stderr.

-DNO_DETACH except that it doesn't switch session ids).
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Added support for Posix semaphore mutex locking (AcceptMutex posixsem)
for those platforms that support it. If using the default
implementation, this is between pthread and sysvsem in priority.
This implies it's the new default for Darwin. [Jim Jagielski]
*) AIX: Fix the syntax for setting the LDR_CNTRL and AIXTHREAD_SCOPE
environment variables in the envvars file. [Jeff Trawick]
*) worker MPM: Don't create a listener thread until we have a worker
thread. Otherwise, in situations where we'll have to wait a while
to take over scoreboard slots from a previous generation, we'll be
accepting connections we can't process yet. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Allow worker MPM to build on systems without pthread_kill().
[Pier Fumagalli, Jeff Trawick]
*) Prevent ap_add_output_filters_by_type from being called in
ap_set_content_type if the content-type hasn't changed.

*) Made AB's use of the Host: header rfc2616 compliant
by Taisuke Yamada <tai> [Dirk-Willem van Gulik].
*) The old, legacy (and unused) code in which the scoreboard was totally
and completely contained in a file (SCOREBOARD_FILE) has been
removed. This does not affect scoreboards which are *mapped* to
files using named-shared-memory. [Jim Jagielski]
*) Change bucket brigades API to allow a "bucket allocator" to be
passed in at certain points. This allows us to implement freelists
so that we can stop using malloc/free so frequently.

*) Remove the single-byte socket reads for CGI headers [Brian Pane]
*) When a proxied site was being served, Apache was replacing
the original site Server header with it's own, which is not
allowed by RFC2616. Fixed. [Graham Leggett]
*) Fix a mod_cgid problem that left daemon processes stranded
in some server restart scenarios. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Added exp_foo and rel_foo variables to for
all Apache and Autoconf path variables (like --sysconfdir,
--sbindir, etc). exp_foo is the "expanded" version, which means
that all internal variable references have been interpolated.
rel_foo is the same as $exp_foo, only relative to $prefix if they
share a common path. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Fix some restart/terminate problems in the worker MPM. Don't

*) Modify receive/send loop in proxy_http and proxy_ftp so that
should it be necessary, the remote server socket is closed before
transmitting the last buffer (set by ProxyIOBufferSize) to the

[Bill Stoddard]
*) Change the verbage on the ScoreBoardFile in our default configs.
Also change the default to be commented out (unspecified) so we
get anonymous shared memory by default. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Implement new ScoreBoardFile directive logic. This affects how
we create the scoreboard's shared memory segment. If the directive
is present, a name-based segment is created. If the directive is
not present, first an anonymous segment is created, and if that
fails, a name-based segment is created from a file of the name
DEFAULT_SCOREBOARD. This gives third-party applications the
ability to access our scoreboard. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Allow mod_deflate to work with non-GET requests and properly send
Content-Lengths. [Sander Striker <striker>]
*) Fix ap_directory_merge() to correctly merge configs when there is
no <Directory /> block. [Justin Erenkrantz, William Rowe]
*) Remove spurious debug messsages that are normal under HTTP
keep-alive logic. [Jeff Trawick, Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Fix a bug in mod_cgid that would prevent proper shutdown death
of the cgid process. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Add signal handling back in to the worker MPM for the one_process
(-X, -DDEBUG, -DONE_PROCESS) case. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Performance: Reuse per-connection transaction pools in the
worker MPM, rather than destroying and recreating them. [Brian Pane]
*) Remove all signals from the worker MPM's child process. Instead,
the parent uses the Pipe of Death for all communication with the
child processes. [Ryan Bloom]
Changes with Apache 2.0.32
*) mod_negotiation: ForceLanguagePriority now uses 'Prefer' as the
default if the directive is not specified. This mirrors older
behavior without changes to the httpd.conf. [William Rowe]
*) Win32: solve the win32 service problems in 2.0.31-alpha, by fixing
the service, mpm and logging code, and bugs in apr_file_open_stderr
and apr_file_dup2 functions. Win2K/XP services have no handles
associated for stdin/out/err, which caused unpredictable behavior
in the prior release. [William Rowe, Bill Stoddard]
*) Win32: simplify the Application Event Log messages, since there isn't
likely to be 'more information in the error log' before an error log
has been opened. [William Rowe]
*) Win32: substantial cleanup to the mpm_winnt code for legibility and
to follow the program flow of other MPMs. [Ryan Bloom, William Rowe]
*) Win32: apache -k shutdown now behaves like apache -k stop.
[Bill Stoddard]
*) Fix prefork to not kill the parent if a child hits a resource shortage
on accept(). [Greg Ames]
*) Fix seg faults that occur when what should be the httpd request line
starts with \r\n followed by garbage. [Greg Ames]
*) Allow statically linked support binaries with the new
--enable-static-support flag, and enable this behavior in
the binbuild script. Also add a new --enable-static-htdbm

*) Allow mod_autoindex to serve symlinks if permitted and attempt to
do only one stat() call when generating the directory listings.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Fix resolve_symlink to save the original symlink name if known.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Be a bit more sane with regard to CanonicalNames. If the user has
specified they want to use the CanonicalName, but they have not
configured a port with the ServerName, then use the same port that
the original request used. [Ryan Bloom and Ken Coar]
*) In core_input_filter, check for an empty brigade after
APR_BRIGADE_NORMALIZE(). Otherwise, we can get segfaults if a
client says it will post some data but we get FIN before any
data arrives. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Not being able to bind to the socket is a fatal error. We should
print an error to the console, and return a non-zero status code.
With these changes, all of the Unix MPMs do that correctly.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) suexec: Allow HTTPS and SSL_* environment variables to be passed
through to CGI scripts. PR 9163
[Brian Reid <breid>,
Zvi Har'El <rl>]
*) Make sure that we use the expat from our source

when we can't talk to the daemon. [Jeff Trawick]
*) apxs: LTFLAGS envvar can override default libtool options. Try
"LTFLAGS=' ' apxs -c mod_foo.c" to see what libtool does under
the covers. [Jeff Trawick]
*) The Location: response header field, used for external
redirect, *must* be an absoluteURI. The Redirect directive
tested for that, but RedirectMatch didn't -- it would allow
almost anything through. Now it will try to turn an abs_path
into an absoluteURI, but it will correctly varf like Redirect
if the final redirection target isn't an absoluteURI. [Ken Coar]
Changes with Apache 2.0.31
*) Create the scoreboard (in the parent) in a global pool context,
so it survives graceful restarts. This fixes a SEGV during
graceful restarts. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Add a timeout option to the proxy code 'ProxyTimeout'
[Ian Holsman]
*) FTP directory listings are now always retrieved in ASCII mode.
The FTP proxy properly escapes URI's and HTML in the generated
listing, and escapes the path components when talking to the FTP
server. It is now possible to browse the root directory by using
a url like: ftp://user@host/%2f/ (ported from apache_1.3.24)
Also, the last path component may contain wildcard characters
'*' and '?', and if they do, a directory listing is created instead
of a file retrieval. Example: ftp://user@host/httpd/server/*.c
[Martin Kraemer]
*) Added single-listener unserialized accept support to the
worker MPM [Brian Pane]
*) New Directive for mod_proxy: 'ProxyPreserveHost'. This passes

*) New Directive Option for ProxyPass. It now can block a location
from being proxied [Jukka Pihl <jukka.pihl>]
*) Don't let the default handler try to serve a raw directory. At
best you get gibberish. Much worse things can happen depending
on the OS. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Change the pre_config hook to return a value. Modules can now emit
an error message and then cause the server to quit gracefully during
startup. This required a bump to the MMN. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Fix some unix socket descriptor leaks in the handler side of
mod_cgid (the part that runs in the server process). Whack a
silly "close(-1)" in the handler too. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Change the pre_mpm hook to return a value, so that scoreboard
init errors percolate up to code that knows how to exit
cleanly. This required a bump to the MMN. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add the socket back to the conn_rec and remove the create_connection
hook. The create_connection hook had a design flaw that did not
allow creating connections based on vhost info. [Bill Stoddard]
*) Fixed PATH_INFO and QUERY_STRING from mod_negotiation results.
Resolves the common case of using negotation to resolve the request
/script/foo for /script.cgi/foo. [William Rowe]
*) Added new functions ap_add_(input|output)_filter_handle to
allow modules to bypass the usual filter name lookup when
adding hard-coded filters to a request [Brian Pane]
*) caching should now work on subrequests (still very experimental)
[Ian Holsman]
*) The Win32 mpm_winnt now has a shared scoreboard. [William Rowe]
*) Change ap_get_brigade prototype to use apr_off_t instead of apr_off_t*.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Refactor ap_rgetline so that it does not use an internal brigade.
Change ap_rgetline's prototype to return errors. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Remove mod_auth_db. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Do not install unnecessary pcre headers like config.h and internal.h.
[Joe Orton <joe>]
*) Change in quick_hanlder behavior for subrequests. it now passes DONE
(as it does for a normal request). quick_handled sub-requests now work
in mod-include [Ian Holsman]
*) Change SUBREQ_CORE so that it is a 'HTTP_HEADER' filter instead of
'CONTENT' one, as it needs to run AFTER all content headers
*) Rename BeOS MPM directive RequestsPerThread to MaxRequestsPerThread.
[Lars Eilebrecht]
*) Split out blocking from the mode in the input filters.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Fix a segfault in mod_include. [Justin Erenkrantz, Jeff Trawick]
*) Cause Win32 to capture all child-worker process errors in
Apache to the main server error log, until the child can
open its own error logs. [William Rowe]
*) HPUX 11.*: Do not kill the child process when accept()
returns ENOBUFS on HPUX 11.*. (ported from th 1.3 patch)
[Madhusudan Mathihalli <madhusudan_mathihalli>, Bill Stoddard]
*) Fix a problem in the parsing of the <Proxy foo> directive.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) rewrite of mod_ssl input filter for better performance and less
memory usage [Doug MacEachern]
*) allow quick_handler to be run on subrequests. [Ian Holsman]
*) mod_dav now asks its provider to place content directly into the
filter stack when handling a GET request. The mod_dav/provider
API has changed, so providers need to be updated. [Greg Stein]
*) Clear the output socket descriptor in unixd_accept() to make sure
we don't supply a bogus socket to the caller if the accept fails.
This caused problems with the worker MPM, which tried to process
the returned socket if it was non-NULL. [Brian Pane]
*) Move a check for an empty brigade to the start of core input filter
to avoid segfaults. [Justin Erenkrantz, Jeff Trawick]
*) Add FileETag directive to allow configurable control of what
data are used to form ETag values for file-based URIs. MMN
bumped to 20020111 because of fields added to the end of
the core_dir_config structure. [Ken Coar]
*) Fix a segfault in mod_rewrite's logging code caused by passing the
wrong config to ap_get_remote_host(). [Jeff Trawick]
*) Allow mod_cgid to work from a binary distribution install by
using 755 for the permissions on the log directory instead of
750. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Fixed a segfault that happened during graceful shutdown (or when
the httpd ran out of file descriptors) with the worker MPM [Brian Pane]
*) Split all Win32 modules [excluding the core components mod_core,
mod_so, mod_win32 and the winnt mpm] into individual loadable
modules, so the administrator may individually disable the former
compiled-in modules by simply commenting out their LoadModule
directives. [William Rowe]
*) Saved Win32 module authors and porters many future headaches, by
duplicating the appropriate .h files such as os.h into the include
directory, including in the build tree. [William Rowe]
*) mod_ssl adjustments to help with using toolkits other than OpenSSL:
Use SSL functions/macros instead of directly dereferencing SSL
structures wherever possible.
Add type-casts for the cases where functions return a generic pointer.
Add $SSL/include to configure search path.
[Madhusudan Mathihalli <madhusudan_mathihalli>]
*) Moved several pointers out of the shared Scoreboard so it is
more portable, and will present the vhost name across server
generation restarts. [William Rowe]
*) Fix SSLPassPhraseDialog exec: and SSLRandomSeed exec:
[Doug MacEachern]
Changes with Apache 2.0.30
*) Fix the main bug for FreeBSD and threaded MPM's. There are
still issues (see STATUS) but at least the server will now
run without crashing the machine.
[David Reid, Aaron Bannert, Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Fix a typo in mod_deflate's m4 config section.
[albert chin <china>]
*) Fix a couple of mod_proxy problems forwarding HTTP connections
and handling CONNECT:
(1) PR #9190 Proxy failed to connect to IPv6 hosts.
(2) Proxy failed to connect when the first IP address returned by
the resolver was unreachable but a secondary IP address was.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix the module identifer as shown in the docs for various core
modules (e.g., the identifer for mod_log_config was previously
listed as config_log_module). PR #9338
[James Watson <ap2bug>]
*) Fix LimitRequestBody directive by placing it in the HTTP
filter. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Fix mod_proxy seg fault when the proxied server returns
an HTTP/0.9 response or a bogus status line.
[Adam Sussman]
*) Prevent mod_proxy from truncating one character off the
end of the status line returned from the proxied server.
[Adam Sussman, Bill Stoddard]
*) Eliminate loop in ap_proxy_string_read().
[Adam Sussman, Bill Stoddard]
*) Provide $0..$9 results from mod_include regex parsing.
[William Rowe]
*) Allow mod-include to look for alternate start & end tags [Ian Holsman]
*) Introduced the ForceLanguagePriority directive, to prevent
returning MULTIPLE_CHOICES or NONE_ACCEPTABLE in some cases,
when using Multiviews. [William Rowe]
*) Fix a problem which prevented mod_cgid and suexec from working
together reliably [Greg Ames]
*) Remove the call to exit() from within mod_auth_digest's post_config
phase. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Fix a problem in mod_auth_digest that could potentially cause
problems with initialized static data on a system that uses DSOs.
[Aaron Bannert]
*) Fix a segfault in the worker MPM that could happen during
child process exits. [Brian Pane, Aaron Bannert]
*) Allow mod_auth_dbm to handle multiple DBM types [Ian Holsman]
*) Fix matching of vhosts by ip address so we find IPv4
vhost address when target address is v4-mapped form of
that address. [Jeff Trawick]
*) More performance tweaks to the BNDM string-search algorithm
used to find "<!--#" tokens in mod_include [Brian Pane]
*) Miscellaneous small performance fixes: optimized away various
string copy operations and removed large temp buffers from
the stack [Brian Pane]
*) Fixed startup segfault that occurred when a VirtualHost
directive had a port but no address [Brian Pane]
*) Allow htdbm to work with multiple DBM types [Ian Holsman]
*) Win32: Made change to apr_sendfile() to return APR_ENOTIMPL
if oslevel < WINNT. This should fix several problems reported
Against 2.0.28 on Windows 98 [Bill Stoddard]
*) Win32: Fix bug that could cause CGI scripts with QUERY_STRINGS
to fail. [Bill Stoddard]
*) Change core code to allow an MPM to set hard thread/server
limits at startup. prefork, worker, and perchild MPMs now have
directives to set these limits. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Win32: The async AcceptEx() event should be autoreset upon
successful completion of a wait (WaitForSingleObject). This
eliminates a number of spurious
setsockopt(SO_UPDATE_ACCEPT_CONTEXT) failed." messages.
[Bill Stoddard]
*) Move any load library path environment variables out of
apachectl and into a separate environment variable file which
can be more easily tailored by the admin. The environment
variable file as built by Apache may have additional system-
specific settings. For example, on OS/390 we tailor the heap
settings to allow lots of threads. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Use the new APR pool code to reduce pool-related lock
contention in the worker MPM. [Sander Striker]
*) The POD no longer assumes the child is listening on
and now pulls the first hostname in the list of listeners to
perform the dummy connect on. This fixes a bug when the user
had configured the Listen directive for an IP other than This would result in undead children and error
messages such as "Connection refused: connect to listener".
[Aaron Bannert]
*) The worker MPM now respects the LockFile setting, needed to
avoid locking problems with NFS. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix segfault when worker MPM receives SIGHUP.
[Ian Holsman, Aaron Bannert, Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Fix bug that could potentially prevent the perchild MPM from
working with more than one vhost/uid. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Change make install and apxs -i processing of DSO modules to
perform special handling on platforms where libtool doesn't install This fixes some wonkiness on HP-UX, Tru64, and AIX
which prevented standard LoadModule statements from working.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Whenever mod_so is enabled (not just when there are DSOs for
our modules), do whatever special magic is required for compiling/
loading third-party modules. This allows third-party DSOs to
be used on an AIX build when there were no built-in modules
built as DSOs. (This should help on OS/390 and BeOS as well.)
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Allow apxs to be used to build DSOs on AIX without requiring the
user to hard-code the list of import files. (This should help
on OS/390 and BeOS as well.) [Jeff Trawick]
*) Resolved segfault in mod_isapi when configuring with ISAPICacheFile.
PR 8563, 8919 [William Rowe]
*) Get binary builds working when libapr and libaprutil are built
shared [Greg Ames]
*) Get shared builds of libapr and libaprutil, as well as Apache DSOs,
working on AIX. [Aaron Bannert, Dick Dunbar <RLDunbar>,
Gary Hook <ghook>, Victor Orlikowski, Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix the handling of SSI directives in which the ">" of the
terminating "-->" is the last byte in a file [Brian Pane]
*) Add back in the "suEXEC mechanism enabled (wrapper: /path/to/suexec)"
message that we had back in apache-1.3 and still have scattered
throughout our docs. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Prevent the Win32 port from continuing after encountering an
error in the command line args to apache. [William Rowe]
*) On a error in the proxy, make it write a line to the error log
[Ian Holsman]
*) Various mod_ssl performance improvements [Doug MacEachern]
Changes with Apache 2.0.29
*) Add buffering in core_output_filter to ensure that long
lists of small buckets don't cause small packet writes.
[Brian Pane, Ryan Bloom]
*) Fix the installation target to make sure that the manual is
installed in the correct location.
[Yoshifumi Hiramatsu <hiramatu> and
Gomez Henri <hgomez>]
*) Fix the cmd command for mod_include. When we are processing
a cmd command, we do not want to use the r->filename to set
the command name. The command comes from the SSI tag. To do this,
I added a variable to the function that builds the command line
in mod_cgi. This allows the include_cmd function to specify
the command line itself. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Change open_logs hook to return a value, allowing you
to flag a error while opening logs
[Ian Holsman, Doug MacEachern]
*) Change post_config hook to return a value, allowing you
to flag a error post config
[Ian Holsman, Jeff Trawick]
*) Allow SUEXEC_BIN (the path to the suexec binary that is
hard-coded into the server) to be specified to the configure
script by the --with-suexec-bin parameter. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Fix segv in worker MPM following accept on pipe-of-death
[Brian Pane]
*) Add mod_deflate to experimental.
[Ian Holsman, Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Bail out at configure time if an invalid MPM was specified.
[jean-frederic clere <jfrederic.clere>]
*) Prevent segv in ap_note_basic_auth_failure() when no AuthName is
configured [John Sterling <sterling>]
*) Fix apxs to use sbindir. [Henri Gomez <hgomez>]
*) Fix a problem with IPv6 vhosts. PR #8118 [Jeff Trawick]
*) Optimization for the BNDM string-search function in
mod_include. [Brian Pane]
*) Fixed the behavior of the XBitHack directive.
[Taketo Kabe <kabe>, Cliff Woolley] PR#8804
*) The threaded MPM for Unix has been removed. Use the worker
MPM instead. [various]
*) APR-ize the resolver logic in mod_unique_id. This fixes a bug
in logging the error from a failed DNS lookup. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Added the missing macros AP_INIT_TAKE13 and AP_INIT_TAKE123.
[Cliff Woolley]
*) Get mod_cgid killed when a MPM exits due to a fatal error.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix a file descriptor leak in mod_include. When we include a
file, we use a sub-request, but we didn't destroy the sub-request
immediately, instead we waited until the original request was
done. This patch closes the sub-request as soon as the data is
done being generated. [Brian Pane <bpane>]
*) Allow modules that add sockets to the ap_listeners list to
define the function that should be used to accept on that
socket. Each MPM can define their own function to use for
the accept function with the MPM_ACCEPT_FUNC macro. This
also abstracts out all of the Unix accept error handling
logic, which has become out of synch across Unix MPMs.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) Fix a bug which would cause the response headers to be omitted
when sending a negotiated ErrorDocument because the required
filters were attached to the wrong request_rec.
[John Sterling <sterling>]
*) Remove commas from the end of the macros that define
directives that are used by MPMs. Prior to this patch,
you would use these macros without commas, which was unlike
the macros for any other directives. Now, the caller provides
the comma rather than the macro providing it. This makes
the macros look more like the rest of the directives.
[Ryan Bloom and Cliff Woolley]
*) Add 'redirect-carefully' environment option to disable sending
redirects under special circumstances. This is helpful for
Microsoft's WebFolders when accessing a directory resource via
DAV methods. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Begin to abstract out the underlying transport layer.
The first step is to remove the socket from the conn_rec,
the server now lives in a context that is passed to the
core's input and output filters. This forces us to be very
careful when adding calls that use the socket directly,
because the socket isn't available in most locations.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) Really reset the MaxClients value in worker and threaded
when the configured value is not a multiple of the number
of threads per child. We said we did previously but we
forgot to. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add Debian layout. [Daniel Stone <daniel>]
*) If shared modules are requested and mod_so is not available,
produce a fatal config-time error. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Improve http2env's performance by cutting the work it has to
do. [Brian Pane <bpane>]
*) use new 'apr_hash_merge' function in mod_mime (performance fix)
[Brian Pane <bpane>]
Changes with Apache 2.0.28
*) Fix infinite loop in mod_cgid.c.
[Dale Ghent <daleg>, Brian Pane <bpane>]
*) When no port is given in a "ServerName host" directive, the
server_rec->port is now set to zero, not 80. That allows for
run-time deduction of the correct server port (depending on
SSL/plain, and depending also on the current setting of
UseCanonicalName). This change makes redirections
work, even with https:// connections. As in Apache-1.3, the
connection's actual port number is never used, only the ServerName
setting or the client's Host: setting. Documentation updated
to reflect the change. [Martin Kraemer]
*) Add a '%{note-name}e' argument to mod-headers, which works in
the same way as mod_log_confg. [Ian Holsman]
*) Fix the spelling of the AP_MPMQ_MIN_SPARE_DAEMONS and
AP_MPMQ_MAX_REQUESTS_DAEMON macros in ap_mpm.h and all standard
MPMs. [Cliff Woolley]
*) Introduce htdbm, a user management utility for db/dbm authorization
databases. [Mladen Turk <mturk>]
*) Optimize usage of strlen and strcat in ap_directory_walk.
[Brian Pane <bpane>]
Changes with Apache 2.0.27
*) Introduce an Apache mod_ssl initial configuration template
(ssl.conf, generated from ssl-std.conf). [Ralf S. Engelschall]
*) Fixed a memory leak in the getline parsing code that could
be triggered by arbitrarily large header lines. Requests
from the core input filter for single lines are now limited
to HUGE_STRING_LEN (8192 bytes). [Aaron Bannert]
*) Fix a truncation bug in how we print the port on the Via: header.
The routine that prints the Via: header now takes a length for
the port string. [Zvi Har'El <rl>]
*) Some syntax errors in mod_mime_magic's magic file can result
in a 500 error, which previously was unlogged. Now we log the
error. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add the support/checkgid helper app, which checks the run-time
validity of group identifiers usable in the Group directive.
[Ken Coar]
*) Various --enable-so options have been fixed: --enable-so is
treated as "static"; explicit --enable-so=shared issues an error;
and explicit --enable-so fails with error on systems without
APR_HAS_DSO. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Fix a segfault in the core input filter when the client socket
gets disconnected unexpectedly. [Cliff Woolley]
*) Fix the reporting for child processes that die. This removes
all of the non-portable W* macros from Apache.
[Jeff Trawick and Ryan Bloom]
*) Win32: Track and display "Parent Server Generation:" in
mod_status output. The generation will be bumped at
server graceful restart, when the child process exits
by hitting MaxRequestsPerChild or if the child
process exits abnormally. [Bill Stoddard]
*) Win32: Fix problem where MaxRequestsPerChild directive was
not being picked up in favor of the default. Enable
the parent to start up a new child process immediately upon
the old child starting shutdown.
[Bill Stoddard]
*) Fix some bungling of the remote port in rfc1413.c so that
IdentityCheck retrieves the proper user id instead of failing
and thus always returning "nobody."
[Dick Streefland <Dick.Streefland>]
*) Introduced thread saftey for mod_rewrite's internal cache.
[Brian Pane <bpane>]
*) Simplified mod_env's directives to behave as most directives are
expected, in that UnsetEnv will not unset a SetEnv and PassEnv
directive following that UnsetEnv within the same container.
Also provides a runtime startup warning if a PassEnv configured
environment value is undefined. [William Rowe]
*) The worker MPM is now completely ported to APR's new lock API. It
uses native APR types for thread mutexes, cross-process mutexes,
and condition variables. [Aaron Bannert]
*) Sync up documentation to remove all references to the now deprecated
Port directive. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Moved all ldap modules from the core to httpd-ldap sub-project
[Ryan Bloom]
*) Exit when we can't listen on any of the configured ports. This
is the same behavior as 1.3, and it avoids having the MPMs to
deal with bogus ap_listen_rec structures. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Cleanup the proxy code that creates a request to the origin
server. This change adds an optional hook, which allows modules
to gain control while the request is created if the proxy module
is loaded. The purpose of this hook is to allow modules to add
input and/or output filters to the request to the origin. While
I was at it, I made the core use this hook, so that proxy request
creation uses some of the code from the core. This can still be
greatly improved, but this is a good start. [Ryan Bloom]
Changes with Apache 2.0.26
*) Port the MaxClients changes from the worker MPM to the threaded
MPM. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Fix mod_proxy so that it handles chunked transfer-encoding and works
with the new input filtering system. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Introduce the MultiviewsMatch directive, to allow the operator
to be flexible in recognizing Handlers and Filters filename
extensions as part of the Multiviews matching logic, strict with
MultiviewsMatch NegotiatedOnly to accept only filename extentions
that designate negotiated parameters, (content type, charset, etc.)
or MultiviewsAll for the 1.3 behavior of matching any files, even
if they have unregistered extensions. [William Rowe]
*) Fixed the configure script to add a LoadModule directive to
the default httpd.conf for any module that was compiled
as a DSO. [Aaron Bannert <aaron>]
*) rewrite mod_ssl input filtering to work with the new input filtering
system. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) prefork: Don't segfault when we are able to listen on some but
not all of the configured ports. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Build mod_so even if no core modules are built shared.
[Aaron Bannert <aaron>]
*) Introduce ap_directory_walk rewrite (with further optimizations
required) to adapt to the ap_process_request_internal() changes.
Optimized so subrequests and redirects now reuse previous section
merges, until we mismatch with the original directory_walk, and
precomputed r->finfo results will cause directory_walk to skip
the most expensive phases of the function. [William Rowe]
*) Allow ApacheMonitor to connect to and control Apache on other
WinNT/2K machines. [Mladen Turk <mturk>]
*) Remove the Port directive. In it's place, the Listen directive
is now a required directive, which tells Apache what port to
listen on. The ServerName directive has also been extended
to accept an optional port. If the port is specified to the
ServerName, the server will report that port whenever it
reports the port that it is listening on. This change was
made to ease configuration errors that stem from having a Port
directive, and a Listen directive. In that situation, the server
would only listen to the port specified by the Listen command,
which caused a lot of confusion to users. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Added mod_mime_magic, mod_unique_id and mod_vhost_alias to the Win32
build, as loadable modules. [William Rowe]
*) Fix --enable-mods-shared processing. If most is specified,
then all modules that can be compiled as shared modules are.
[Aaron Bannert <aaron>]
*) Update the mime.types file to map video/vnd.mpegurl to mxu
and add commonly used audio/x-mpegurl for m3u extensions.
[Heiko Recktenwald <uzs106>, Lars Eilebrecht]
*) Eliminate the depreciated r->content_language, in favor of the array
r->content_languages introduced many years ago. Module authors must
substantially overhaul their modules, so this needs to be upgraded
if the module still relied on backwards-brokeness. [William Rowe]
*) Allow configure help strings to work with autoconf 2.50+ and 2.13.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Rewrite the input filtering mechanisms to consolidate and reorganize
code. In short, core_input_filter does something now and
ap_http_filter is now only concerned with HTTP. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Update the Win32 build to re-absorb mod_proxy and family.
[William Rowe]
*) Resolved the build failure on Win32 using MSVC 5.0 (without the
current SDK.) [William Rowe]
*) Some style changes to the code that does ProxyErrorOverride. Fixed
config merge behaviour. [Graham Leggett]
*) Allow support programs to be compiled against a static version
of libapr. This allows the smaller support programs to be
relocated. [Aaron Bannert <aaron>]
*) Update the mime.types file to the registered media types as
of 2001-09-25, and add mapping for xsl extension [Mark Cox]
*) Fix MaxClients in the Worker MPM, so that it specifies the maximum
number of clients that can connect at the same time, instead of
specifying the maximum number of child processes.
[Aaron Bannert <aaron>]
*) Switch proc_pthread AcceptMutex configuration directive to pthread to
be consistent with 1.3. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Cache apr_explode_localtime() value for 15 seconds.
[Brian Pane <bpane>]
*) Fix mod_include to not return ETag or Last-Modified headers.
[Ian Holsman <ianh>]
*) Fix worker MPM's scoreboard logic. [Aaron Bannert <aaron>]
*) Eliminate the wasteful run-time conversion of method names from strings
to numbers in places where the methods are known at compile time.
[Brian Pane <bpane>]
*) Turn the worker MPM's queue into a LIFO. This may
improve cache-hit performance under some conditions.
[Aaron Bannert <aaron>]
*) Switch back to SIGUSR1 for graceful restarts on all platforms that
support it. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Cleanup the worker MPM. We no longer re-use transaction
pools. This incurs less overhead than shuffling the pools
around so that they can be re-used. Remove one of the
queue's condition variables. We just redefined the API to
state that you can't try to add more stuff than you allocated
segments for. [Aaron Bannert <aaron>]
*) Fix SSL VPATH builds [Cody Sherr <csherr>]
*) Fixed persistent connections when a request contains a body.
[Greg Stein]
*) mod_dav uses a new API to speak to the backend provider for dead
property management. [Greg Stein]
*) Remove the Win32 script-processing exception from mod_cgi, and
roll build_command_line/build_argv_list into a unified, overrideable
ap_cgi_build_command optional function. [William Rowe]
*) Rewrite find_start_sequence to use a better search algorithm
to find the start tag. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Fix a seg fault in mod_include. When we are generating an
internal redirect, we must set r->uri to "", not a bogus
string, and not NULL. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Optimized location_walk, so subrequests, redirects and second passes
now reuse previous section merges on a <Location > by <Location >
basis, until we mismatch with the original location_walk.
[William Rowe]
*) Back out the 1.45 change to util_script.c. This change made
us set the environment variable REQUEST_URI to the redirected
URI, instead of the originally requested URI.
[Taketo Kabe <kabe>]
*) Make mod_include do lazy evaluation of potentially expensive to
compute variables. [Brian Pane <bpane>]
*) Fix logging of bytes sent for HEAD requests. %b and %B should
log either - or 0, before this patch, they were both logging
the file size. [Taketo Kabe <kabe>]
*) Make mod_include check for BYTE_CHECK_THRESHOLD per bucket rather
than per character. [Brian Pane <bpane>]
*) Normalize the primary request, redirects and sub-requests to
run the same ap_process_request_internal for consistency in
robustness, behavior and security. [William Rowe]
*) Fix a segfault with mod_include when r->path_info is not set
(which is the case with mod_proxy). [Ian Holsman <ianh>]
*) Add -X functionality back. This indicates to all MPMs and any other
part of Apache that it should run in "debug" mode. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Some initial support for the cygwin platform [prefork only].
This is not to be confused with support for the WinNT/Win32
platform, which is the recommended configuration for native
Win32 users. The cygwin platform support is recommended for
cygwin platform users. [Stipe Tolj <tolj>]
*) Changed syntax of Set{Input|Output}Filter. The list of filters
must be semicolon delimited (if more than one filter is given.)
The Set{Input|Output}Filter directive now overrides a parent
container's directive (e.g. SetInputFilter in <Directory /web/foo>
will override any SetInputFilter directive in <Directory /web>.)
This new syntax is more consistent with Add{Input|Output}Filter
directives defined in mod_mime. Also cures a bug in prior releases
where the Set{Input|Output}Filter directive would corrupt the
global configuration if the multiple directives were nested.
[William Rowe]
*) Cured what's ailed mime for quite some time. If an AddSomething
was given in the configuration (Language, Charset, Handler or
Encoding) Apache would set the content type as given by AddType,
but refused to check the mime.types file if AddType wasn't given
for that specific extension. Setting the AddHandler for .html
without setting the AddType text/html html would cause Apache to
use the default content type. [William Rowe]
*) Added some bulletproofing to memory allocation in the LDAP cache
code. [Graham Leggett]
Changes with Apache 2.0.25
*) Move the installed /manual directory out of the /htdocs/ tree, so
that it can be kept more independently from the remaining document
root. The "Alias /manual ..." already allowed for easy projection
into existing private document trees. [Martin Kraemer]
*) Add specified user attributes to the environment when using
mod_auth_ldap. This allows you to use mod_include to embed specified
user attributes in a page like so:
Hello <!--#echo var="AUTHENTICATE_CN"-->, how are you?
[Graham Leggett]
*) Fix a performance problem with the worker MPM. We now create
transaction pools once, and re-use them for each connection.
[Aaron Bannert <aaron>]
*) Modfied mod_mime to prevent mod_negotation from serving a multiview
of a 'handler' or 'filter', so that any filename extension that does
not contribute to the negotiated metadata can't be served without
an explicit request. E.g., if the .Z extension is associated with
an unzip filter, the user request somefile.Z.html, mod_negotiation
won't serve it. It can serve somefile.Z.html when somefile.Z is
requested, since the .Z extension is explictly requested, if the
.html extension is associated with ContentType text/html.
[William Rowe]
*) Introduce the AddInputFilter filter[;filter...] ext [ext...]
and corresponding AddOutputFilter syntax, to insert one or more
filters by mod_mime filename extension processing.
[William Rowe]
*) Fix a growing connection pool in core_output_filter() for
keepalive requests. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Moved split_and_pass_pretag_buckets back to being a
macro at Ryans's request. Removed the return from it
by setting and returning a return code instead. Updated
the code to check the return code from the macro and
do the right thing. [Paul J. Reder]
*) Fix a segfault when a numeric value was received for Host:.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Add a function ap_remove_input_filter. This is to match
up with ap_remove_output_filter. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Clean up location_walk, so that this step performs a minimum
amount of redundant effort (it must be run twice, but it will no
longer reparse all <Location > blocks when the request uri
hadn't changed.) [William Rowe]
*) Eliminate proxy: (and all other 'special') processing from the
ap_directory_walk() phase. Modules that want to use special
walk logic should refer to the mod_proxy map_to_location example,
with it's proxy_walk and proxysection implementation. This makes
either directory_walk flavor much more legible, since that phase
only runs against real <Directory > blocks.
[William Rowe]
*) SECURITY: Fix a security problem in mod_include which would allow
an SSI document to be passed to the client unparsed.
[Cliff Woolley, Brian Pane]
*) Introduce the map_to_storage hook, which allows modules to bypass
the directory_walk and file_walk for non-file requests. TRACE
shortcut moved to http_protocol.c as APR_HOOK_MIDDLE, and the
directory_walk/file_walk happen as APR_HOOK_VERY_LAST in core.c.
[William Rowe]
*) Add the ability for mod_include to add the INCLUDES filter
if the file is configured for the server-parsed handler.
This makes the configuration for .shtml files much easier
to understand, and allows mod_include to honor Apache 1.3
config files. Based on Doug MacEachern's patch to PHP
to do the same thing. [Ryan Bloom]
*) force OpenSSL to ignore process local-caching and to always
get/set/delete sessions using mod_ssl's callbacks
[Madhusudan Mathihalli <madhusudan_mathihalli>,
Geoff Thorpe <geoff>]
*) Make the worker MPM shutdown and restart cleanly. This also
cleans up some race conditions, and gets the worker using
pools more cleanly. [Aaron Bannert <aaron>]
*) Implement CRYPTO_set_locking_callback() in terms of apr_lock
for mod_ssl
[Madhusudan Mathihalli <madhusudan_mathihalli>]
*) Fix for mod_include. Ryan's patch to check error
codes put a return in the wrong place. Also, the
include handler return code wasn't being checked.
I don't like macros with returns, so I converted
[Paul J. Reder <rederpj>]
*) fix segv in mod_mime if no AddTypes are configured
[John Sterling <sterling>]
*) Enable ssl client authentication at SSL_accept time
[Madhusudan Mathihalli <madhusudan_mathihalli>]
*) Fix a segfault in mod_include when the original request has no
associated filename (e.g., we're filtering the error document for
a bad URI). [Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix a storage leak (a strdup() call) in mod_mime_magic. [Jeff Trawick]
*) The prefork and OS/2 MPMs are overwriting the pid file when a second copy
of httpd is started and shuts down due to socket conflict. Moving the
call to ap_log_pid solves the problem.
*) Changed the late-1.3 log_config substitution %c to %X, to log the
status of the closed connection, as it conflicts with the far more
common, historical ssl logging directive %...{var}c. [William Rowe]
*) Added the common error/ tree to the build/install targets
(similar to the common icons/ tree) for the multi-language error
messages that Lars committed earlier. [William Rowe]
*) Added a multi process, multi threaded OS/2 MPM mpmt_os2. [Brian Havard]
*) Added a default commented-out mod_ldap and mod_auth_ldap
configuration to httpd-std.conf and httpd-win.conf
[Graham Leggett]
*) Added documentation for mod_ldap and mod_auth_ldap.
[Graham Leggett]
*) Enabled negative caching on attribute comparisons in the LDAP cache.
Fixed a problem where the default cache TTL was set in milliseconds
not microseconds causing the cache to time out almost immediately.
[Graham Leggett]
*) Fixed all the #if APR_HAS_SHARED_MEMORY checks within the LDAP
module code to follow APR. [Graham Leggett]
*) Fixed LDAP cleanup on graceful restarts. LDAP connections are now
cleaned up when the connection pool pool is cleaned up.
[Graham Leggett]
*) Fix a minor issue with Jeff Trawick's mod_include
patch. Without this patch, the code will just allocate
more bytes in get_combined_directive than are needed.
[Paul Reder]
*) Added the LDAP authentication module mod_auth_ldap.
[Dave Carrigan <dave>, Graham Leggett]
*) Added the LDAP cache and connection pooling module mod_ldap.
[Dave Carrigan <dave>, Graham Leggett]
*) Fix --enable-modules=all breakage with mod_auth_db and mod_auth_digest
by allowing a module to disable itself if its prerequisites are not
met. [Justin Erenkrantz]
Changes with Apache 2.0.24
*) Fix a couple of issues in mod_include when the tag appeared at
offsets near 8192 in the file being parsed. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix an assertion failure in mod_ssl when the keepalive timeout is
reached. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Numerous improvements to the Win32 build system. Introduced command line
builds without requiring .mak files for MSVC 6.0 and later versions.
Improved .dsp file compatibility for both Visual Studio 5.0 and 6.0 users.
[William Rowe]
*) Assorted corrections and improvements to the winnt_mpm startup code. Better
reporting of uninstalled services and other error conditions, and changed the
default service name to Apache2. [William Rowe]
*) Numerous improvements to the Win32 ApacheMonitor utility, including winnt_mpm
compatibility with existing Apache 1.3 Win32 Apache management utilites.
[Mladen Turk <mturk>, William Rowe]
*) Fixed the segfaults in mod_mime introduced by hash tables in 2.0.20.
[William Rowe, Greg Ames]
*) Rounded out the mod_mime Add/Remove pairs by adding RemoveLanguage
and RemoveCharset directives. [William Rowe]
*) The Unix MPMs other than perchild now allow child server
processes to use the accept mutex when starting as root and
using SysV sems for the accept mutex. Previously, this
combination would lead to fatal errors in the child server
processes. perchild can't use SysV sems because of security
issues. [Jeff Trawick, Greg Ames]
*) Added Win32 revision stamp resources to all http binaries
(including modules/ and support/ tools.) PR7322 [William Rowe]
*) Fix ap_rvprintf to support more than 4K of data at one time.
[Cody Sherr <csherr>]
*) We have always used the obsolete/deprecated Netscape syntax
for our tracking cookies; now the CookieStyle directive
allows the Webmaster to choose the Netscape, RFC2109, or
RFC2965 format. The new CookieDomain directive allows the
setting of the cookie's Domain= attribute, too. PR #s 5006,
5023, 5920, 6140 [Ken Coar]
*) Tweak server/Makefile so that the rules for generating exports.c
are compatible with make utilities which don't expand wildcards
in a dependency list (e.g., OS/390 make, certain levels of GNU
make). [Jeff Trawick]
*) Install the SSL headers. [John Sterling <sterling>]
*) Begin to sanitize the MPM configuration directives. Now, all
MPMs use the same functions for all common MPM directives. This
should make it easier to catch all bugs in these directives once.
[Cody Sherr <csherr>]
*) Close a major resource leak. Every time we had issued a
graceful restart, we leaked a socket descriptor.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) Fix a problem with the new method code. We need to cast
the 1 to an apr_int64_t or it will be treated as a 32-bit
integer, and it will wrap after being shifted 32 times.
[Cody Sherr <csherr> and Ryan Morgan <rmorgan>]
*) Fix a bug in mod_expires. Previous to this patch, if you
told mod_expires to add 604800 seconds to the last-modified
time, it actually added 604800 usec's to the last-modified time,
so that when looking at the response it looked like nothing
had been done. The root of the problem was that we always compute
time in usec's, but we ask users to input sec's. This means we
need to convert to usec's before using those values.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) The worker MPM now handles shutdown and restart requests. It
definitely isn't perfect, but we do stop the servers correctly.
The biggest problem right now is that SIGHUP causes the server to
just die. [Ryan Bloom]
Changes with Apache 2.0.23
*) Use the prefork MPM by default on Unix. [various]
*) Added a systray icon monitor application for Win32.
[Mladen Turk <mturk>]
*) mod_rewrite: Fix the line ending on some non-Unix systems for
messages written to the rewrite log.
[Richard Labennett <rlabenn>]
*) All mod_autoindex query parsing is now quietly quashed with the
IndexOption IgnoreClient. The IndexOption SuppressColumnSorting
still drops the column sort <a href>'s for the column headers, but
IgnoreClient is required to ignore these Query options entirely.
[William Rowe]
*) Introduced new mod_autoindex query argument parsing for F=[0|1|2]
to allow the client to select plain, FancyIndexing or HTMLTable
formatting, V=[0|1] to inhibit or enable version sorting, and
P=pattern to return only specific files. The old Query Arguments
were reorganized as C=f for sorting column 'f' (same N, D, S, or M
as before), and O=A|D for ordering ascending or descending.
[William Rowe]
*) Fixed an error in mod_include's directive parsing routines which
caused #if, #elif, and #else expressions containing backslashes
to be improperly evaluated. [Cliff Woolley]
*) Introduced new mod_autoindex IndexOptions flags: SuppressIcon to
drop the icon column, SuppressRules to drop the <hr> elements,
and HTMLTable to create rudimentary HTML table listings (implies
FancyIndexing). [William Rowe]
*) Re-introduced the mod_autoindex IndexOptions flag TrackModified
from Apache 1.3.15. This is needed for two reasons, first, given
multiple machines within a server farm, ETags and Last-Modified
stamps won't correspond from machine to machine, and second, many
Unixes don't capture changes to the date or time stamp of existing
files, since these don't modify the dirent itself. [William Rowe]
*) Re-introduced the mod_autoindex IndexOptions flag FoldersFirst
and DirectoryWidth options from Apache 1.3.10.
[William Rowe, Ken Coar]
*) Eliminated FancyIndexing directive, deprecated early in Apache
1.3 by the IndexOptions FancyIndexing syntax. [William Rowe]
*) mod_autoindex now excludes any file names that would result in
an error, other than a success or redirect. Also optimized
the parent directory, always included except in the URI '/'.
[William Rowe]
*) Refactored mod_negotiation and mod_mime to help mod_dir accept
negotiated index pages, and prevent the server from defaulting
to an autoindex of the directory. mod_negotiation will now die
with a 500 Internal Error if it could match some filenames
(e.g. for mod_dir) but none can be served. mod_negotation now
refuses to serve any file with an extention that mod_mime doesn't
recognize, and wasn't part of the request. [William Rowe]
*) Eliminate mod_cgi's handling of .exe files without the .exe file
extension. This is already handled by multiviews, if the admin
wishes to AddHandler .exe or define a content type handler and
associate .exe files with that content type. Multiviews must be
enabled to allow these to be served. [William Rowe]
*) Speed up the server's response to a spike in incoming workload
or restarts by assigning empty scoreboard slots to new processes
when they are available. [Greg Ames]
*) Add a handler to mod_includes.c. This handler is designed to
implement the XbitHack directive. This can't be done with a
fixup, because we need to check the content-type, which is
only available in the handler phase. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Make the includes filter check return codes from filters lower in
the filter chain. If a lower level filter returns an error, then
the request needs to stop immediately. This allows mod_include to
stop parsing data once a lower filter recognizes an error.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) Add the ability to extend the methods that Apache understands
and have those methods <limit>able in the httpd.conf. It uses
the same bit mask/shifted offset as the original HTTP methods
such as M_GET or M_POST, but expands the total bits from an int to
an ap_int64_t to handle more bits for new request methods than
an int provides. [Cody Sherr <csherr>]
*) Fix broken mod_mime behavior in merging its arguments. Possible
cause of unexplicable crashes introduced in 2.0.20. [William Rowe]
*) Solve many mod_ssl porting issues (too many to detail) with
help from the whole team, but most notably [Ralf S. Engelschall,
Madhusudan Mathihalli <madhusudan_mathihalli>,
Doug MacEachern, William Rowe, Cliff Woolley]
*) More stall fixes for the threaded & worker mpm's.
Make mod_status output more accurate. Don't
count workers in processes which aren't actively
serving requests. [Greg Ames]
*) Win32: Get SSI exec cgi tag working. [Bill Stoddard]
*) Add a single listener/multiple worker MPM. This MPM is
definately not fully correct, but it allows us to solve many
of the problems that exist in the threaded MPM. This is a
modified version of the threaded MPM. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Improve content generation throughout Apache, providing closer
compliance with HTML 3.2, HTML 4.01 Transitional and XHTML 1.0
Transitional specifications. [William Rowe]
Changes with Apache 2.0.22
*) Fix a problem where the threaded MPM stalls after restarts or
segfaults. Also prevent multiple active processes from using
the same scoreboard slot. [Greg Ames]
*) Apache/Win32 now fills in the service description with Apache's
server version string, including loaded and advertised modules.
[William Rowe]
*) Improved support for the Win32 build, to recover gracefully from
missing apr or apr-util directories or the awk interpreter,
create the proper cgi-bin examples, including a test-cgi.bat, and
fix the perl shebang line for, when installing from
the build environment. [William Rowe]
*) Fix a segfault in threaded.c caused by passing uninitialized
apr_thread_t * to apr_thread_join(). [Jeff Trawick]
*) Use new APR number conversion functions to reduce CPU consumption
when setting the content length, and in mod_log_config.
[Brian Pane]
*) Fix problem reported by Taketo Kabe <kabe>
where HEAD response headers were being repeated twice for
files greater than 32K bytes (4*AP_MIN_BYTES_TO_WRITE). This
problem in the http_header filter was exposed by the recent rewrite
of the content_length filter. [Taketo Kabe, Bill Stoddard]
*) Fix seg faults in mod_status with ExtendedStatus enabled, after
restarts. A garbage pointer to a vhost's server_rec from the
previous generation was being left around under certain
conditions. [Greg Ames]
*) Fix a cosmetic problem with mod_include. Non-existant SSI vars
used to appear as '(none', without the closing paren.
[Günter Knauf <eflash>]
*) Improve the exports generating awk script. In the past, we had
work around problems in the awk script by avoiding some #if and
#ifdefs. This has bitten us many times in generating the exports.c
file. This improvement allows corrects the header file parsing.
[Sander Striker <striker>]
Changes with Apache 2.0.21
*) Resolve the Win32 htpasswd bug, where a file that existed would be
overwritten, regardless of the -c flag.
[William Rowe, Mladen Turk <mladen.turk>]
*) Introduce connection sub-pools into ab. Truncating the lifetime
of these allocations means that ab no longer perpetually grows
its working set, running out of memory on large request attempts.
[William Rowe]
*) Make scoreboard creation a hook. This allows management
modules to have access to the scoreboard at the time that it is
created, and at every restart request.
[Cody Sherr <csherr>]
*) Changed AP_MPMQ_MAX_DAEMONS to refer to MaxClients and
added an AP_MPMQ_MAX_DAEMON_USED to refer to the highest
daemon index actually used in the scoreboard. I also
updated the pertinent calls. [Paul J. Reder]
*) Win32: Prevent listening sockets from being inherited by
the Apache child process, CGI scripts, rotatelog process
etc. If the Apache child process segfaults, any processes
that the child started are not reaped. Prior to this fix,
these processes inherited the listening sockets which sometimes
prevented the restarted Apache child process from accepting
connections (ie, the server would hang).
[Bill Stoddard]
*) Provide vhost and request strings when ExtendedStatus is on.
[Greg Ames]
*) Fix some issues with the pod and prefork: check the pod *after*
processing a connection so that a server processing a time-
consuming request bails out as soon as practical; when the
parent process wakes up a server process via connect(), use an
APR timeout on the connect() so that we don't hang for a long
time if there aren't server processes around to do accept().
[Jeff Trawick, Greg Ames]
*) Performance improvement to mod_mime.c. find_ct() in mod_mime,
spends a lot of time in apr_table_get calls. Using the default
httpd.conf, the tables for languages and charsets are somewhat
large, so the time spent scanning them on each request is
significant. Replacing the tables with hash tables provides
a nice speedup. [Brian Pane <bpane>]
*) Add two functions to allow modules to access random parts of the
scoreboard. This allows modules compiled for one MPM to access the
scoreboard, even if it the server was compiled for another MPM.
[Harrie Hazewinkel <harrie>]
Changes with Apache 2.0.20
*) Fix problem in content-length filter where the filter would
buffer all the output from a CGI before sending any bytes
down the filter stack to the network. This problem would cause
significant memory consumption if the CGIs generated
lots of bytes. [Bill Stoddard]
*) Get non-blocking CGI pipe reads working with the bucket brigades.
[Bill Stoddard]
*) Fix seg fault on Windows when serving files cached with mod_file_cache.
[Bill Stoddard]
*) Fix a bug in the threaded MPM that would cause it to kill off all
workers immediately after starting if the number of workers started
was above a certain threshold. [Ryan Bloom, Bill Stoddard]
Changes with Apache 2.0.19
*) Fix problem with threaded MPM. The problem was that if each child
process was busy serving a single long-lived request and the server
was sent a graceful restart signal, the server would stop serving
requests. This would happen because each child process would wait to
die until the last thread was done, and the parent wouldn't spawn any
new children until a process died. Now, the parent looks at the fact
that the children are dying gracefully, and starts new children.
Those new children only start enough threads to compliment the number
of threads in the other child process that shares the same spot in
the scoreboard. In this way, we make sure to never go over
MaxClients. [Ryan Bloom]
*) modified mod_negotiation and mod_autoindex to speed up by almost a
factor of two on apr_dir_read()-enhanced platforms, such as Win32
and OS2, by calling ap_sub_request_lookup_dirent() with the results
already provided by apr_dir_read(). [William Rowe]
*) mod_file_cache is now more robust to filtering and serves requests
slightly more efficiently. [Cliff Woolley]
*) Fix problem handling FLUSH bucket in the chunked encoding filter.
Module was calling ap_rwrite() followed by ap_rflush() but the
served content was not being displayed in the browser. Inspection
of the output stream revealed that the first data chunk was
missing the trailing CRLF required by the RFC. [Bill Stoddard]
*) apxs no longer generates ap_send_http_header() in the example handler
*) Fix an ab problem which could cause a divide-by-zero exception
with certain invocations (e.g., ab -k -c 6 -n 100 localhost/).
[Ian Holsman <ianh>]
*) Solve case-insensitive platforms' confusion about negotiated
filenames, allowing files of differnt case to match in choosing
the document to serve. [William Rowe]
*) Fix brokenness when ThreadsPerChild is higher than the built-in
limit. We left ap_threads_per_child at the higher value which
led to segfaults when doing certain scoreboard operations.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix seg faults and/or missing output from mod_include. The
default_handler was using the subrequest pool for files and
MMAPs, even though the associated APR structures typically
live longer than the subrequest. [Greg Ames]
*) Extend mod_setenvif to support specifying regular expressions
on the SetEnvIf (and SetEnvIfNoCase) directive attribute field.
Example: SetEnvIf ^TS* [a-z].* HAVE_TS
will cause HAVE_TS to be set if any of the request headers begins
with "TS" and has a value that begins with any character in the
set [a-z]. [Bill Stoddard]
*) httpd children now re-bind themselves to a random CPU on
multiprocessor systems on AIX via bindprocessor() in 2.0.
[Victor J. Orlikowski]
*) Fix htdigest. It would go into a loop in getline when adding
a second user. [Bill Stoddard]
*) Win32 platforms now fully support mod_userdir options. [Will Rowe]
*) Automatically generate httpd.exp for AIX.
DSOs now work again on AIX in 2.0
[Victor J. Orlikowski]
*) Add a new request hook, error_log. This phase allows modules
to act on the error log string _after_ it has been written
to the error log. The goal for this hook is to allow monitoring
modules to send the error string to the monitoring agent.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) Modify mod_echo to make it use filters for input and output.
[Ryan Morgan <rmorgan>]
*) Extend mod_headers to support conditional driven Header
add, append and set. Use SetEnvIf to set an envar and conditionally
add/append/set headers based on this envar thusly:
SetEnvIf TSMyHeader value HAVE_TSMyHeader
Header add MyHeader "%t %D" env=HAVE_TSMyHeader
If the request contains header "TSMyHeader: value" then header
MyHeader: "t=xxxxxxxxxx D=yyyy" will be sent on the response.
[Bill Stoddard]
*) Extend mod_headers to support using format specifiers on Header
add, append and set header values. Two format specifiers are supported:
%t - reports, in UTC microseconds since the epoch, when the
request was received.
%D - reports the time, in microseconds, between when the request was
received and the response sent.
Header add MyHeader "This request served in %D microseconds. %t"
results in a header being added to the response that looks like this:
MyHeader: This request served in D=5438 microseconds. t=991424704447256
[Bill Stoddard]
*) Fix reset_filter(). We need to be careful how we remove filters.
If we set r->output_filters to NULL, we also have to reset the
connection's filters. [John Sterling]
*) Optimise reset_filter() in http_protocol.c. [Greg Stein]
*) Add a check to ap_die() to make sure the filter stack is sane and
contains the correct basic filters when an error occurs. This fixes
a problem where headers are not being sent on error. [John Sterling]
*) New Header directive 'echo' option. "Header echo regex" will
cause any headers received on the request that match regex to be
echoed to (included in) the response headers.
[Bill Stoddard]
*) include/ap_compat.h tested and set APR_COMPAT_H instead of AP_COMPAT_H.
This prevented the inclusion of apr_compat.h. PR #7773
[Oleg Broytmann <phd>]
*) Moved util_uri to the apr-util library. This required a bunch of
apr_name changes for the uri utility functions. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Move the addition of default AP_HTTP_HTTP_HEADER filters to the
insert_filter phase so that other filters are not bypassed by default.
[Graham Leggett]
*) Reimplement mod_headers as an output filter. mod_headers can now
add custom headers to inbound requests using the RequestHeader directive
and to responses using the same old Header directive. [Graham Leggett]
Changes with Apache 2.0.18
*) Fix command-line processing so that if a bad argument is specified
Apache will exit. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Change the make targets and rules to be consistent in all of the
Apache-owned source trees. [Roy Fielding]
*) Fix processing of the TRACE method. Previously we passed bogus
parms to form_header_field() and it overlaid some vhost structures,
resulting in a segfault in check_hostalias().
[Greg Ames, Jeff Trawick]
*) Win32: Add support for reliable piped logs. If the logging process
goes down, Apache will automatically restart it. This function has
been part of Apache on Unix/Linux/BSD since the early v1.3 releases.
[Bill Stoddard]
*) Do not start piped log processes during the config file
preflight. This change also circumvents a problem on
Windows where the rotatelog processes created during preflight
was not getting cleaned up properly.
