Required Apache Configuration Setting

If you run the package depot server behind an Apache web server instance, include the following setting in your httpd.conf file to not decode encoded forward slashes:

AllowEncodedSlashes NoDecode

Package names can contain URL encoded forward slashes because forward slashes are used to express hierarchical package names. For example, the package name pkg://solaris/developer/build/make becomes to the web server. To prevent these forward slashes from being interpreted as directory delimiters, instruct Apache not to decode the %2F encoded slashes.

Omitting this setting can result in 404 Not Found errors and can very negatively impact search functionality.
