Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Default directory

Postby Mister Nono » 09. October 2006 08:49

Hello,

My web projects are on c:\www\

For example :

Code: Select all
c:\www\project1
c:\www\project2...


How indicate to Xamp this, for use projects with the web adresse : :?:

Code: Select all
http://localhost/project1...


Thank. :wink:

Would it not be easier to use the defaults and move your projects from c:\www\project1 to the htdocs folder xampp\htdocs\project1?

This would give you:
http://localhost/project1/

Then you wouldn't have to change a thing and you would still be able to access the XAMPP Welcome page with all it's menu items.

No, because all projects are in my itinerant profile, and had been save regulary on the server.

Nota : In EasyPHP is very easy to change this default directory. :wink:

It's even easier in Apache when you know how. ;)


In your xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf find this:
(Note - C:/xampp/htdocs will be different on your server and depends on where you installed XAMPP to):
Code: Select all
#
# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
# documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
# symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.
#
DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs"

Change to:
DocumentRoot "C:/www"

Now find this:
Code: Select all
#
# This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.
#
<Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs">

Change to:
<Directory "C:/www">

Save the file then restart the Apache server.
