is not invalid, and is equivalent to http://host:port/.
I know, however the CERN server remaps directory URLs automatically. See,
By default there is no difference between directory names with
and without a trailing slash when it comes to welcome pages.
The one without a trailing slash will cause an automatic
redirection to the one with a trailing slash, which then gets
mapped to the welcome page.
If it is desirable to have plain directory names to produce a
directory listing, and only the ones with a trailing slash
cause the welcome page to be returned, set the AlwaysWelcome
directive to off:
Default value is On.
It should work exactly the same as the syntactically correct URL.
