Re the switch to HTTP/1.0 and the CERN daemon, a number of existing
sites are having problems like the following. Is there anything that
can be done on the daemon software side to have this go more smoothly.

What is it exactly that I need to reconfigure? At the moment, out httpd.conf

pass / file:/home/www/Homepage

pass *

Is it something that should be put in there, or do I need to rebuild the

Thanks for any help
