For me, the most obvious solutions are often highly obfuscated. Its true, common sense is not readily accessible for me. Why? I have no clue, but given the chance, I could probably come up with a very complicated reason why, so let’s skip that for now.
The obviousness I’d like to talk about today is /usr/share/doc/. I’ve often wished I could browse this with Iceweasel - and finally this morning I realized I could, so I am! I made a few adjustments to /etc/apach2/sites-available/default:
ExtFilterDefine gunzip mode=output cmd="/bin/gunzip" <Files *.gz> SetOutputFilter gunzip </Files> Alias /doc/ "/usr/share/doc/" <Directory "/usr/share/doc/"> Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None Order deny,allow AddType text/plain .gz Deny from all Allow from 127.0.0.0/255.0.0.0 ::1/128 Allow from 192.168 </Directory>
