This is part of my config file.

ServerRoot "/usr/local"
Listen 6680
DocumentRoot "/usr/local/www/apache22/data"
<Directory />
     AllowOverride None
     Order deny,allow
     Deny from all

<Directory "/usr/local/www/apache22/data">
Options FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride None
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from all

<IfModule alias_module>
     Alias /FBSD_manuals/ "/usr/local/share/doc/"

     <Directory "/usr/local/share/doc">
         Options Indexes FollowSymlinks MultiViews
         AllowOverride None
         Order allow,deny
         Allow from all

Here are messages from the access-log.
"GET /index.php/00.00-web_style_sheet.css HTTP/1.1" 200 6839
"GET /index.php/powered_by_apache_bsd.gif HTTP/1.1" 200 6839
"GET /index.php/powered_by_FreeBSD.gif HTTP/1.1" 200 6839

You can see that apache22 is saying the .css and the 2 .gif have been 
served up, but the browser has white background instead of blue and the 
2 gif images are missing from the displayed web page. Now this is a 
working website that displays correctly on apache13 so i know there is 
nothing wrong with the directory content.

The alias website has the .css file in the same directory and it 
displays correctly.

What am I overlooking here?
