Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0.9 Administrator's Configuration File Reference


The following table describes parameters for the pfx2dir function.

Table 7–11 pfx2dir Parameters




URI prefix to convert. It should not have a trailing slash (/). 


Local file system directory path to which the prefix is converted. It should not have a trailing slash (/). 


(Optional) Specifies an additional named object in obj.conf whose directives will be applied to this request.


(Optional) Instructs the to server look for the PATHINFO forward in the path after ntrans-base, instead of backward from the end of path as the server function find-pathinfo does by default.

The find-pathinfo-forward parameter is ignored if the ntrans-base parameter is not set in rq->vars when the server function find-pathinfo is called. By default, ntrans-base is set.

This feature can improve performance for certain URLs by reducing the number of stats performed in the server function find-pathinfo.

On Windows, you can use this feature to exclude the PATHINFO from the server URL normalization process (by changing `\' to `/') when the PathCheck server function find-pathinfo is used. Some double-byte characters have hexadecimal values that might be parsed as URL separator characters such as `\' or ~. Using the find-pathinfo-forward parameter can sometimes prevent incorrect parsing of URLs containing double-byte characters.


(Optional) Common to all obj.conf functions. Adds a bucket to monitor performance. For more information, see The bucket Parameter.
