Thank you *so* much for this fix, Atle. I've been running around like a headless chook trying to get ez Publish 3 working on Apache2 on Mac OS X. It finally works now! I've added an entry in the user contributed documentation to this thread.

excellent, Patrick.
thanks for the URL's.

i got it working now. I can't confirm this solution for windows xp by experience, because i run freebsd 4-stable, php 4.3.1 and apache 2.0.44 at the moment.

this is what i added to httpd.conf:
<Directory /<httpd-root>/ezpublish-x.x.x>
AcceptPathInfo On
