ok, i set up a linux box as a webserver but im having troubles with the apache.

if i type http://mybox/mydir
it thinks that mydir is a file in the root directory and therefore i get a 404.
if i want to access that dir i have to type http://mybox/mydir/
with a trailing slash.

is there a way to configure apache that it accesses dirs without that slash?

Hah I had this problem too but stopped worrying about it.
However since you asked I bugged my friendly neighborhood sysadmin

Basically you need to add

ServerName yourdomain.com (see the linked explaination)

I set this on my test box just to local host and it worked fine for me even when accessing the box by name I think the big thing is the value needs to be set.

well, im now sittin in front of the servers httpd.conf and there is already an entry with the form:

ServerName mycomputer.mydomain.com

and just FYI the problem doesnt only occur with webusers ( /~grumble/) but with every directory on the server.
to me it seems like a DNS problem cause i cant access the webserver via the name (mycomputer) but only via the ip address (http://192.168.123.123)

Found these in the apache.org website - don't know how much use they'll be...
