I am using Windows XP3, Xampp v1.7.1
I searched post with symbolic link but couldn't find what I'm hoping is possible. Sorry if posted already:
I did see a post with a linux shell cmd ln -s /..... and I see mention of this in the httpd.conf so that gave me hope it is possible.
Xampp is installed here: D:\xampp Instead of me copying over all the files I want my users to have access to, would I be able to safely symbolic link to those 'directories'?
1.) I have files I would like to link to on my website here: D:\Sites\Friends\ (completely outside of xampp dir)
2.) and here: F:\Archive\Files (different drive than xampp)
3.) Most important users may not travel 'up' that directory structure ex; F:\Archive\ but users could travel down in the directory structure to any sub-directory there is ex; F:\Archive\Files\Wallpaper\hi-res\low-res etc
I really don't want to copy all those files over to my xampp directory because:
1. wasting space on hard drive, as I keep them safe and in tidy order where they are now with other files I won't offer to users (like source files).
2. If I make any changes to those files, and or have any new files to add I would have to add to 2 places (1 in orginal folder and another in xampp folder for users to access).
Thank you again for your time!! oooooo < m&m's
