Can more than one drive be used to contain pages for a web site?

That's possible:
Apache Directive "Alias" or a symlink.

For a complete partition/volume on a harddrive) you can use "mountvol.exe" or the "Windows Disk Management".

For a link to a (sub-) folder you can use e.g. "linkd.exe" or "junction.exe".

The use of directories outside the rootdirectory

Postby edroberts46 » 27. August 2008 15:04

add the following line to the <ifModule alias_module> located in httpd.conf file

alias /<directory name to be used by web site> drive:/full path name

alias /pictures d:/pictures

the above will allow anything located in the directory d:/pictures to be accessed by http://localhost/pictures/<file name>

You will also not to add a <directory> </directory>

<directory "d:/pictures">
Allowoveride None
Options None
Order allow, deny
</direcdtory>
