Not sure if this is a freeBSD or apache issue, but I'm trying to duplicate a 
website. We build part of it for the end consumer so wish to test offline. The 
live site is running

4.8-RELEASE-p24 FreeBSD &  Apache/1.3.27 (Unix) PHP/4.3.8 mod_ssl/2.8.11 

I'm running

4.6-STABLE FreeBSD  &  Apache/1.3.27

However, on the live site a request for


succeeds, but fails on the copied version. This isn't just a URL-->filesystem 
problem as I can list http://xxxx/images/ on both sites and the both index.html 
files contain an entry for the image looking like

<IMG SRC="/icons/image2.gif" ALT="[IMG]"> <A 
HREF="Bjarne%20Stroustrup.jpg">Bjarne Stroustrup.jpg</A>   07-Nov-2004 19:50 

I'm assuming this must be a blanks in filename problem somehow, but where and 
how to fix?
