3.14. CERN Metafiles
A metafile is a file with extra header data to go with the file served -- for example, you could add a Refresh header. There seems no obvious place for this material, so we will put it here, with apologies to those readers who find it rather odd.
Turns metafile processing on or off on a directory basis.
Names the directory in which Apache is to look for metafiles. This is usually a "hidden" subdirectory of the directory where the file is held. Set to the value "." to look in the same directory.
Names the suffix of the file containing metainformation.
The default values for these directives will cause a request for DOCUMENT_ROOT/mydir/fred.html to look for metainformation (supplementing the MIME header) in DOCUMENT_ROOT/mydir/fred.html.meta.
