[LON-CAPA-users] Inaccessible problems while using course editor

The access denied message is caused by the + in the file name.

The breakage in the Course Editor preview is an unintended side effect  
of changes between 2.11.1 and 2.11.2 to address a different bug (6806).

Anyway, a one line change will fix it.
See: mail.lon-capa.org/pipermail/lon-capa-cvs/Week-of-Mon-20171106/027953.html

A 2.11.2 LON-CAPA instance can be updated with 1.484.2.75 (which  
includes this change) as follows:

All on one line:

wget -O /home/httpd/lib/perl/Apache/londocs.pm  

followed by:

service httpd reload
