If you belong to Common, there is a presentation that I have done that has
all the many differences between the 2 versions of apache all laid out.
Also, yes, the security model COMPLETELY changed. But, we were a bit
nicer, we have include the OLD security module in the new Apache 2.4
release so that a server will start up on the new IBM i release and will
continue to be secure. If you need to make any changes, you do need to
convert over to the new security model. Also, the 7.2 Memo to Users has a
pretty detailed section on these changes.

We are currently on V7R1 (apache 2.2) and looking at going to R2 or R3
later this year and that is on our check list to see what directives
changed in apache 2.4.

I believe they also removed the allow/deny directives for doing
authentication and authorization.

Four Hundred" web site

That is quite possible Jeff - we went direct from V7R1 to V7R3 and this
is the first time I have tried to use these test services since then.
I have it working by using a simplified directive and having a separate
AliasMatch for each web service. For now I'll live with that until I
have more time to get a more generic process working.

For the record I am now simply using ScriptAlias /restsrv1
/qsys.lib/partner400.lib/restsrv1.pgm and ScriptAlias /restsrv2
/qsys.lib/partner400.lib/restsrv2.pgm etc. Luckily I only have three to
test right now!

tags the ".pgm" onto the end of quantityquery
<[11]http://partner400.com/cgi/restsrv2.pgm/quantityquery/?partnum=0000011&quantity=5>
even when the trailing / is present as shown.
