I attached a new patch file, now based on the git master, just for reference. The change itself is quite small, and only impacts the 404 handler.
But if this is not the right time for this change then just let it go, and I will have a look again when 2.1.0 is released, to see if it is still needed, or if there is another way to achieve this.

Please base patches on git master, not on 2.0.3. Chances are that they don't apply any more and manual rebase is no fun.

Next, I want to restructure the 'fs' module and we need to restructure the integration of ssi and cgi so that we have more control about generated headers. Being like that, what you want to do might work in the end, but I don't think after those changes, your patch applies cleanly...

However, all that has to wait until 2.1.0 is released.

The current implementation of the webserver (in src/apps/httpd) expects that each URL refers to a file (in fsdata).

For my implementation I would like to have a representation of a local file system, but this means that the provided URL does not match a file in the HTTPD files (as part of the fsdata).

For example, the URL i want to use is http://<server>/files/, but this would result in a 404. Next to serving a directory overview I would also like the option of downloading files directly from the directory, more like for example Apache does.

To implement this I have added an option to the HTTPD configuration (LWIP_HTTPD_CUSTOM_404_HANDLER). When this is defined a user callback function (http_custom_404_handler) is called. If this function returns ERR_OK the data provided by this function will be sent back to the client, otherwise the normal 404 page will be served. Using this method I am able to very easily create a /files/-handler, that can server a directory overview, but also allows for downloading of files.

Note that the data provided by the callback function should include all headers.
Next to the way I am using this method, this also allows for users to create additional return codes (like a 418), as all the headers need to be provided by the callback.

The patch is based on the STABLE-2.0.3_RELEASE.
