Subject:   Directory Index in script aliased directories

From:   Chris V
I have my DirectoryIndex set to:
DirectoryIndex index.html /~chris/cgi/index.py


The cgi directory is scriptaliased as such to activate cgi in the cgi directory
ScriptAlias /cgi /cgi


This serves up and runs the python script:
http://localhost/~chris/cgi/index.py


This fails with an error:
http://localhost/~chris/cgi


Why wouldn't DirectoryIndex take over and run index.py since we are accessing the ScpritAliased directory itself?


Thanks
