NCSA httpd match expressions

NCSA httpd version 1.2 or later supports wildcard expressions in various places in order to allow the administrator to specify patterns which should match strings.


The format of these expressions is very similar to shell wildcard patterns. The characters * and ? are allowed.


foo* matches foo, fooa,and foobar, but does not match afoo.

/*/.??* matches any substring which contains /. followed by two characters. This pattern is useful for disabling UNIX hidden files such as /foo/bar/.htaccess.
