[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#495245: nagios3: Supplied apache2.conf file does not allow access to stylesheets by default

Package: nagios3
Version: 3.0.3-2
Severity: normal


I installed the nagios3 package today, and instructed it to configure
the apache2 server.

My apache2 install by default denies all access to /, and allows access
to individual sites as appropriate.  The nagios3 config file,
/etc/nagios3/apache2.conf, contains the stanza:
<DirectoryMatch (/usr/share/nagios3/htdocs|/usr/lib/cgi-bin/nagios3)>
which causes most of nagios to work, however, the stylesheets in
/etc/nagios3/stylesheets are not included in this, so apache2 refuses to
serve them.

Changing the DirectoryMatch to include /etc/nagios3/stylesheets with:
seems to solve this problem.

It would be nice if this change could be made to the apache2.conf,
especially as the apache2 package suggests that this denying access to /
by default will become standard after lenny.
