Apache question, day 2
Saturday, June 09, 2007 by Dave Winer.
I got a few interesting responses to the question I asked yesterday about file writing to a folder served by Apache on Windows 2000.
The only concrete suggestion came from Don Hopkins, who said that turning off automatic file indexing by the OS would cure the problem. I have my doubts since he implied that in his experience the problem clears after a few seconds. As I reported, in my case, the problem only clears after I restart both pieces of software. But I tried it anyway, no need to index files on the server. The only way I'll know if it worked is if the problem goes away. I'll let you know after I update 20 or 30 times.
