  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Web content is not being compressed before it gets transferred
    to the client.  Use mod_deflate for this. Now add the
    functionality to have localized content.  Use mod_negotitaion
    for this.  After enabling the usage of mod_negotiation the
    localized web content does not get compressed before they are
    sent to the browser.
    
    This is only broken when the configuration you want applied to
    mod_negotiation (SetOutputFilter DEFLATE) is defined
    within a <Location> or <LocationMatch> block.
    

Local fix

  • Local Fix&#65496;
    Configure deflate in a <Directory> block that covers the
    negotiated content -- or outside of a config section entirely.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM HTTP Server users that have enabled     *
    *                  mod_negotiation (MultiViews)                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When mod_negotiation (MultiViews) is    *
    *                      configured, configuration of other      *
    *                      features in <Location> may not be       *
    *                      applied.                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Apply this fix if mod_negotiation is not    *
    *                  working as expected.                        *
    ****************************************************************
    mod_negotiation uses an internal subrequest to probe for and
    deliver the negotiated resource, but this internal subrequest
    did
    not properly merge the configured list of <Location> based
    configurations.
    

Problem conclusion

  • IBM HTTP Server was updated to include per-location config
    during internal subrequest processing.
    
    This fix is targeted for IHS fixpacks:
     - 7.0.0.27
     - 8.0.0.6
     - 8.5.0.2
