Fix Recommendation

Edit the https.conf file and add the following entries for every enabled directory except root.

Order allow,deny

<LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS>
Deny from all
</LimitExcept>

Check Contents

Enter the following command:

more /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf

For every enabled <Directory> directive (except root), ensure the following entry exists:

Order allow,deny

<LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS>
Deny from all
</LimitExcept>

If the statement above is found in the root directory statement (i.e. <Directory />), this is a finding.

If the statement above is found enabled but without the appropriate LimitExcept or Order statement, this is a finding.

If the statement is not found inside an enabled <Directory> directive, this is a finding.

Note: If the LimitExcept statement above is operationally limiting. This should be explicitly documented with the Web Manager, at which point this can be considered not a finding.
