I am trying to automate the provisioning of an Ubuntu Vagrant box with a Bash script. All is well, but I am having difficulty with configuring Apache to allow overrides from
.htaccess files. In my config file, there is the following block:
<Directory /var/www/> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride None Order allow,deny allow from all </Directory>
All I need to do is replace
AllowOverride None with
AllowOverride all. This seems to be a task for
sed, but there are other
<Directory> blocks in this config file where I do not want to allow override.
How can I use sed to replace a specific string with a new string, when that specific string occurs between two other specific strings?
In other words, how can I replace
AllowOverride None only when it appears between
<Directory /var/www/> and
I can use the following command to get the block I am interested in:
sed -n '/<Directory \/var\/www\/>/,/<\/Directory>/p' 000-default
