Directory directive


Directory is a sectioning directive which controls the directory to which access control directives apply.


This directive applies only to the Global ACF. All directives in the Global ACF must be contained in a Directory section.


Opening Directive:

<Directory dir>

dir is the absolute pathname of the directory you are protecting. If you are using NCSA httpd 1.2 or later, this can also be a wildcard expression of a set of directories you wish to protect.

Closing directive:



<Directory /u/Web>
Options None
The directives contained within the Directory section above would only apply to the server directory /u/Web.
