Static Content

The Web server serves content statically or dynamically, depending on the request URL.

On static requests (those that do not match the Web server's servlet filter), the Web server serves files out of the content directory determined from file-root for the specified virtual host.

The Web server guarantees that for such static responses, it will serve only those files accessible in subdirectories of the content directory. In the absence of filesystem links, this means that only files which live in the content directory will be made available to the outside world. The server ignores the relative path specifiers .. and . in URLs.
