NAME ^

Apache::AxKit::Plugin::NotFoundIfPathInfo - return 404 (NOT FOUND) if PATH_INFO is present.

SYNOPSIS ^

  AxAddPlugin Apache::AxKit::Plugin::NotFoundIfPathInfo

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is a very simple plugin for AxKit that returns NOT_FOUND if PATH_INFO has length. It is (obviously) incompatible with modules that depend on PATH_INFO. (i.E. Apache::AxKit::StyleChooser::PathInfo)

Given you have /this/is/myfile.html on your server and someone requests GET /this/is/myfile.html/bla/bla, AxKit will happily serve myfile.html and put /bla/bla in the PATH_INFO. This behaviour can get anoying under circumstances: Someone creates a loop with broken relative links and a stupid webspider starts to crawl through these...

BUGS ^

None known at this time.
