Missing in 1.5.x:



I run lighttpd 1.4.19 on Linux on top of a case-insensitive filesystem (JFS with OS/2 compatibility enabled). I noticed that while lighty forces lower case filenames for files within the server.document-root, it doesn't for files in a userdir.


The original filename is test.php (works):

The original filename is test.php (shows sources !!):

-- anders1


#1 Updated by kaank over 7 years ago

Added a patch that should solve the problem by using buffer_to_lower before assigning the path to physical.path - first patch and first real attempt at solving a lighty bug so if I've overlooked something let me know so I can correct it with this and future patches.

  • Status changed from New to Fixed
  • Resolution set to fixed

"Fixed" in r2283 - but i wouldn't use a case-insensitive filesystem if i needed a secure webserver; i guess there are more problems in that area than we will ever find.

I didn't use your patch as there is more than lowercase on windows.
