I lack the motivation and courage to investigate into all the things that need fixing, updating and improving with the program, and no-one else seems to find cause for improvements. However, I do make a few changes over time, mostly for my personal needs, so I present a small update, offering a number of improvements. There might be another release or two to come, and you are reminded that the program is unrestricted open source so you are free to make your own changes.
Here are some key features of "error acgi":
Automatic, customisable virtual directory listing (folder listing) generation on the fly; no need to generate files by hand, nor manually refresh them when your site changes. Directory listings can display Finder comments, and the URLs of web location files. Directory listings can show custom header messages, in plain text or HTML. Listings can also be accessed in tab-separated text/plain format. For security reasons, you can specify which parts of your site are to permit listings.
301-based redirection for folders and files
Allows you to have multiple default page names, such as index.html and index.asp
Dynamic error pages, which can contain any combination of code, name and message for errors that occur
Template-based customisation of the listing and error pages, so that they match your site’s style
Display of code 500 error pages for when the server has failed to send a file which does exists, as a diagnostic aid (usually either a file lacking a file extension, or a missing MIME entry in the MacHTTP config file)
Settings can be reloaded on the fly either from the GUI, or via an AppleEvent.
A 68k version is now available [Simon Williams]
Can now show Rumpus Long Filename records as filenames in directory listings (for display purposes only; the actual paths remain the same).
