HeaderName directive


This directive specifies what filename httpd should look for when indexing a directory, in order to add a custom header. This can describe the contents of the directory.


HeaderName name

name is the name of the file httpd should look for when trying to find a description file. httpd will first look for name.html, and if found, will display the HTML inlined with its own index. If it finds name, it will include the file as plaintext.

Only one HeaderName directive should appear in the configuration file.


If no HeaderName is present, httpd assumes nothing.


HeaderName HEADER

When generating an index for the directory /foo, httpd will look for /foo/HEADER.html, and will insert it at the top of the index if found. If not, it will then look for /foo/HEADER and insert it if found. If it finds nothing, it will include nothing.
