Directory 'icons' cause trouble

    Hi out there,

    I'm not sure how to write down this thread and explain the problem, because this is not my language :(

    I've added a new folder called 'icons' to my webspace and filled it with some Files (gif/jpeg/png).

    Now, I startet to browse to one of this images with different kinds of browser (http://www.mydomain.com/icons/image.gif) but the image would'nt come up. I ran into the 404 errorpage.

    At first I thought, the files are broken, but after moving the images to an other folder (called 'images'), every browser brings up the image-file succesfully.

    Is there anyone who knows about this problem and additional knows how to fix it?

    Best regards,

    The directory name 'icons' is a reserved name when used directly under the domain's document root. The simplest and least problematic way to get around it would be:

    1. Use a different name.

    2. Put it under an additional sub-directory (ex. domain.com/my/icons = homepath/domain.com/httpdocs/my/icons)

    Thanks for reply,

    is this the only one reserved name or do you know about other?

    In time I know about:
    Subdomain(s): 'webmailer'
    Folder(s): 'plesk-stat'; 'icons'

    Is there a documentation or FAQ available about this? I didn't find anything.

    If you have awstats installed:

    There could be more, it depends on what other software packages you have installed on the server.

    Check the contents of your httpd.conf and httpd.include files (location of files depends on what OS or Linux distro you are running). For RH type OS, look in /etc/httpd/conf directory.

    Doc or FAQ? - ROFL, not likely.
