xampp 1.7.2 + htdocs at other disk

Postby DeVrije » 10. December 2009 13:29

XAMPP 1.7.2 does indeed work fine EXCEPT when the map 'C:/xampp/htdocs' has been defined in the file 'httpd.conf' as 'D:/Server'. I have copied the map 'C:/xampp/htdocs/xampp' to the map 'D:/Server/xampp'. In this case some php files in the latter map uses the files '../../install/xampp_language.txt' which should be '/xampp/xampp_language.txt'.

Should I have to adapt all files in the latter map which uses the file '../../xxx' (where xxx = any filename)? If yes, who should they be sent to for the fix? If no, who will do so? And when could it be available?

There is no need to do this.

I guess you are meaning, that you have set DocumentRoot to "D:/Server"?

Yes, indeed I have adapted only two lines:
1: DocumentRoot "D:/Server"
2: <Directory "D:/Server">

Hence I have to copy the ebovementioned map, else it will do not work!

I guess, someone who changes the DocumentRoot, doesn't need simple examples anymore ;-) (and that's all in this directory)

If you need this examples, just add an Alias.

Hence I have copied the map 'C:/xampp/htdocs/xampp' to the map 'D:/Server/xampp', but all programs within that map are not flexible. I have to adapt about 8 files in order to able use the primary XAMPP welcome page and copy about 3 files from the map 'C:/xampp/install' to 'D::/Server/xampp' as well.

Should I send those files to you for the distribution (after your check of course!)?

You remember?

So, instead of copying this directory, add this line to your "httpd.conf":
Code: Select all
Alias /xampp "C:/xampp/htdocs/xampp/"
