APACHE 1.3.28 and trailing slash problem

ending url slash problem

I've just change my apache configuration and I just create a problem.
For example, I've an application which named is "dol". In the apache configuration file I've put :

Alias /dol /app/dol/cv
<Directory "/app/dol/cv">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Before changing the configuration, when I was tipping: "http://srv/dol/dir1" server send me back the srv/dol/dir1/index.html file. Now I've a 404 error message and I must type: "http://srv/dol/dir1/". When tipping "http://srv/dol/dir1", the error log file says nothing. I know that the “good” URL format is “http://srv/dol/dir1/" but many users have bookmarked the older format and I need to find how to restore the old configuration.

Many thanks in advance!

Welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com]!

Not sure, but try removing "Indexes" from the list of Options. The function of "fixing" missing trailing slashes is performed by mod_dir [httpd.apache.org], and "Indexes" may be interfering.
